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.

    Plenty of beautiful streets to walk around in. The main square with the old town hall and quirky statues lies at the heart of the old town. Most sites are within walking distance including the Bratislava Castle, St Martins Cathedral and Michael’s Gate.

    Plenty of cafes, bistros and souvenir shops in the place to chill out in.

    Did not realize that this small statue had a name, but did learn the story behind it on our tour. Many of the streets had interesting markers and manhole covers, but this beats them all.

    Great museum with a very interesting permanent exhibition. Parts of the walls are glass, so you can see the river from inside the building. Both indoors and outdoors exhibitions are lovely. Easy parking, very nice cafe. When sunny, enjoy a coffee break outside. You should spend at least one and a half hour to see the whole exhibition.

    Cute church, interesting style. I'm glad we didn't force ourselves to get up at 6am to see the inside, since during it's non-working hours, you can still go in through first doors and see the inside through the glassed second doors

    Bratislava castle is not something you can miss. It's sits high up on a hill overlooking the old town.
    Didn't go inside the castle but it is free to wander about the grounds and outside the castle.
    You aren't going to visit Bratislava and not go see the castle?

    A really nice piece of history, at the beginning I didn't want to go but at the end that I had nothing better to do we went and it was actually worth all that walking.

    Few crowds, fascinating history. Well worth a visit to Bratislava generally. The old town is quite charming and not at all crowded like the better known capitals of Europe.

    Nice small square with some beautiful buildings and a few small shops. Really busy hub of activity. Few benches to sit on to just sit and watch all that is going on.

    Tower Michaels gate is the only tower of the old city walls that is left. It is at the end of St Michaels street. It used to sit over a moat surrounding the old city in the 1300's. It is a must see if the old city as its one of the oldest buildings in town.

    10 euros is really good value. You get access to the entire Town Hall and also the museum next door in the Primatial Palace. Combined you get a broad sweep of Slovakian history from the Middle Ages to the Soviet era. The highlight is the bell tower and the office half-way up which is beautifully preserved and then the view from the top. English translations are pretty poor... so you're mainly looking at stuff.

    This was the coronation church of the Hungarian empire from 1563 to 1830. Queen Maria Theresa was crowned here. The church and was rebuilt in the 18th century with a Baroque appearance. It has the remains of St John the Merciful from 620.

    We ended up here by accident after a walk along the waterfront. We ended our walk with a late breakfast at McDonalds, later realizing that we were in this mall.

    Really like the idea of the circus theme statues scattered about the property, with the window-ceiling that is akin to a circus dome. Happening upon each statue is like an Easter Egg hunt. Look in every direction!

    I can see from the photos of other TA entries that there are a lot of other statues I did not see, including outside.

    Otherwise, this is a nice, slick mall that is surprisingly large, within walking distance of the tourist areas, and a lot of shopping options.
