Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Sitting in the courtyard of the Primates palace is the great statue of St George slaying the dragon. It is really well composed statue. Again, as it was still winter in February while we visited, there was no water in the fountain. It was built in the 1700's and a testament to the history of the area.

    Artistic fountain located in the center of the Old Town Square, guaranteed you'll see it when walking through the square. Interesting detail on the sculptures. Historic piece to view.

    Its a lovely fountain that depicts Ganymed being carried to the top of Mt Olympus so he can serve the gods. Below that are children or figures holding fish from the Danube river. However, due to the time we were there, no water was issuing from the fishes mouths as the fountain was bare of water for the winter period. However, it is still a lovely piece of sculpted architecture. It is located in front of the National theatre which in itself is a lovely building worth seeing.

    Also known as the peace fountain, this is located just opposite the Presidential Palace and is a great place for a quick photo stop with the palace in the background.

    A delightful fountain and sculpture in the park. We came across it on way to the river after visiting the blue church. Don’t miss blue church.

    This statute is in a area I walked past. I wasn’t looking for it on purpose. It’s an ok statue but I don’t know what it stands for. I wouldn’t go out of the way to see it.

    I visited in November so the water had been turned off and drained from the fountain, which is a shame because it's actually a great looking fountain and one I think is worthwhile seeing.

    I would have liked to see it in full bloom. The patterns on the globe are great and just the grandeur of it, which you don't understand the size and space perspective until you're actually there - it's huge!

    The Presidential Palace is right in front and you can see the soldiers patrolling the palace. They move around ceremonially throughout the day (maybe every 30 minutes to 1 hour) and based on the looks of the soldiers the day I was there, they do like an audience! Makes them more enthusiastic as they swap positions and walk end to end of the perimeter.

    On way back towards the river we came across this little park. So nice. Also next to a tram stop. Delightful sculpture like so many in Bratislava

    I was so surprised that the garden just behind the most important political building is accessible for all visitors. A great place for chilling and jogging.

    Ganymedova fontana is a nice fountain in front of the Slovak National Theatre. It is a nice photo place as well.

    Fontana Carlton is OK but nothing special. There are far better fountains and things to do and/or see in Bratislava.

    This is a square you will walk past nothing special. Lots of locals going about doing their business.

    There's a small square next to the town square graced by a fountain in the middle. Statue of a woman or a nymph holding a jar from which water was supposed to spout from. However since it was winter, the fountain was not operating.

    There's a plaque showing logos of companies. I guess they were commercial sponsors.

    Sculpture is very professional and was placed here in deep communism. Female body is design with perfection and deep passion. It's pity the fountain is not always maintained more often.

    In front of the old market hall designed by Eiffel (the hall, not the fountain). Easily missed and very ancient and bearing the Bratislava coat of arms.
