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.

    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.

    Tours start outside this building. The building itself is really nice. They say it has 600 seats. It looks like a really cool place and matches some of the buildings around it. Nice.

    This building is the 18th Century classical style Archbishop's Palace. Now the building is the Bratislava natural residence. There is limited admission since it is a residence. Areas open to give guests an idea of the architecture style and interior decoration.

    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.

    Walking around the wonderful Old Town street's of Bratislava you will be dazzled by the amazing architecture that abounds in this city ,just off arguably the most beautiful square in this city namely Hlavne Námestie and on a street called Radnicna you will pass through Aponiho Palace.
    This awesome looking building built between 1761- 1762 in the splendid Rococo style of architecture that is so pleasing on the eye is now part of the Bratislavian City Museum complex,it houses the Museum Of Viticulture and The Museum Of Historical Interiors, it's been a museum complex since 1932 and is one of the standout pieces of architecture in Bratislava, my twin brother Stephen and I were in this most beautiful of cities over the Christmas period and this building looked awesome both day and night,makes for some great photographic opportunities.
    Easy to locate on Radnicna in the beautiful Old Town and in an area of outstandingly beautiful architecture and packed with pubs, bars and restaurants .
    Well worth checking out.

    This is certainly a narrow house presently being used as a kebab shop. Interesting to see but of no great signifance from a tourist perspective. The upstairs is used as accommodation.

    In arguably the most beautiful square in Bratislava namely Hlavne Námestie there are amazing buildings on all sides with the Town Hall ( Stará Radnica ) being the most eye catching but Jesenakov Palac on the far corner of this square is yet another beautiful structure.
    The beautiful facade looks amazing,very symmetrical and very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities, we were here over the Christmas period and visited the great Christmas market held in the square ,we enjoyed the magical Christmas Market that had the amazing architecture especially Stará Radnica and of course the Jesenakov Palac as stunning backdrops.
    Easy to locate on Hlavne Námestie and most definitely well worth checking out.

    While visiting the wonderful Christmas market in Hlavne Námestie you cannot fail to be impressed with the amazing architecture of this square and Kutscherfeldov Palac is one of the many type of buildings that make up this square.
    This is one of the smallest palace buildings in Bratislava, like a lot of the buildings in this square it's built in the Rococo style of architecture that is so pleasing on the eye, constructed by 1762 it's was owned by the royal property in Magyaróvár, Count L Von Kutcherfeld,the palace was the home from 1847 of the famous Russian composer A G Rubinstein and from 1991 became the French Embassy and French Institute.
    We visited the Christmas market every day in this square and loved the architecture which was a stunning backdrop to the magnificent Christmas market.
    Easy to locate on Hlavne Námestie and most definitely well worth checking.

    The wonderful Old Town of Bratislava is packed with amazing buildings and Miestrodržitelśky Palác is a splendid example of the type of grand looking buildings to be found here.
    An old and historical important building, a great example of Rococo style architecture so prevalent in the Old Town.
    Miestrodržitelśky Palác is now a Slovak Government Building and is very photogenic indeed, makes for some great photographic opportunities, the building is found on Radnicna in the beautiful Old Town and is most definitely well worth checking out.
