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.

    Fell in love with this beautiful castle in ruins, the land its on, and the Danube River that runs by the castle... the site of the weakest part of the Iron Curtain!

    Old Town was fantastic and fun. So many good restaurants and beautiful buildings. The site of the Christmas Market and Christmas Tree. We thoroughly enjoyed Old Town and wish we had a few more days to repeat some of our favorite places to eat and drink.

    As you walk under the gate your first impression of the capital will be inspiring. Fresh and active with outgoing people, the many cafes and bars are lined along the street emanating from the entrance. The dome is scaffolded and under repair in June of 2022.

    Medium-sized Gothic cathedral with a spire that towers 85 meters above the city skyline. The church was the coronation cathedral for numerous monarchs of the Kingdom of Hungary over the years. It dates back to the 12th century but with the usual many renovations and reconstructions along the way. The interior has some beautiful elaborately carved altars but the rest of the interior is without much ornateness; There is an interesting crypt below. There is no fee to enter or tour the church.

    Great Primates' Palace is certainly one of the major attractions of Bratislava, it has a very beautiful architecture and can be seen outside the wonderful Fountain of San Giorgio and the Dragon.
    It is worthy to stop if you are in the area.

    Pur guide made this claim because there were about 6,000 graves next to the Danube River. As the river level rose, they moved all graves to higher ground except for 23 (one of which is Schreiber one of the famous Jewish Rabbis).

    The city walls in Bratislava are definitely worth checking out. We walked through them a few times to cross the road between old town and the castle. They do close in the evening (unsure the exact time), so be aware of that and plan accordingly.

    Went to take a photo of a griffin. Bratislava was full of dragons, geckos and creatures of the night.

    Stefanikova Street is a very long street that brings you directly into the Old Town, it's a street that has some amazing architecture along,some really grand architecture including the Government Office and the Summer Archbishops Palace, there's also innumerable pubs and bars along the street including the awesome Fabrika ,Dungeon Pub,Bon Bon Jazz Bar,Flame Music Bar and many many more ,not just along the street but the side streets along Stefanikova Street, there's only one problem and that's the constant traffic, it's a major artery into the city centre and there is a constant flow of traffic ,this can't be helped but it takes away from the beautiful architecture along this street and the great nightlife, that said it's still a cool place to walk along and is most definitely well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to this most beautiful of cities.

    As we only had a few hours in Bratislava, we didn't see much. Arriving by train, we walked a short distance to the Presidential Palace. The palace itself wasn't open to the public, however, the gardens, to the rear were. The palace itself looked very impressive, and well maintained. This was in contrast to the surrounding buildings, which looked a little tired.
    Take the No93 Bus from the railway station, and you're there in 2 minutes!
