Everyone who is visiting Bratislava definitely should spend more of their time in the old time! 5 -15 min walk distance are all the monuments and museums .. amazing places for wine, coffee, food, architecture.. best place to be!

I enjoyed walking around Old Town. The architecture was fabulous. The people were friendly. There was a great selection of restaurants, bars, and shops. You can definitely get a taste of the local culture. I enjoyed wandering through all the alleys camera in hand.

The old town is not a big area. Although there is a tour cart going around, walking is definitely a better way to see things. A few highlights are the Michael’s Gate, The old town hall, St Martin’s Cathedral, and – my favorite - Man...More

Several buildings are well preserved. We visited the wine museum, good choice in case you wish to buy. The historical museum next door can be visited using the same ticket. There is a torture section in case anyone is interested. Quite ghastly. Lots of handicraft...More

There is only 1 train station in Bratislava, it will definitely be that one. Around 15 minutes walk into the centre of Bratislava.

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.
