Very unimpressive. I walked around the whole old town area in less than 20 minutes. There is only a few shops to see. The place seems depressing. As a whole I found Bratislava very boring and wanted to leave after the first day.

Things to see, statues dotted around the town all gave there little stories. Architecture worth looking at and lots of history. You can walk everywhere, because your never far from anything and it's the best way to get the best views

Really enjoyed walking around old town. Lots of shops and small alleyways. But, one member of our group was pickpocketed. She opened her pursue to make a purchase and while she was turned to the clerk, had her wallet taken. Seems there is much more...More

Yes, it is within walking distance - probably a 10-15 min walk however you could probably catch one of the buses if you wish. We did walk it both ways - one way in the rain - and it was no problem.

Depends on the time of the year and the amount of people, we were in a road trip from Prague to Budapest so just stopped by here to grab dinner and see the old town, total time was less than 3 hours.
