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.

    The architecture is amazing and there are so many lovely shops and fabulous restaurants to explore. Give yourself 3-4 hours to completely explore the town before hiking all the way up to the massive castle and gardens. Not to be missed.

    Devic Castle can be reached via Bus 29 from Bratislava. Many directions will suggest you catch the 29 from under the bridge stop; however, you can do it from any bus stop along the Vajanskejo Nabrezhie. Bus ticket could be purchased at the yellow machine. If you dont have a 24 hour pass, I suggest buying two single tickets since I do not recall seeing a yellow ticket machine in Devin. (Remember to validate the ticket on the bus).
    Also, you should get off at Strbska stop, since it is a closer walk then from the Hrad Devin stop.
    The castle overlooks the confluence of Danube and Morava Rivers. Remeber to bring the cameras as the view from the top is magnificent.
    Castle itself is well maintained, but also fairly small, so I dont see how someone will spend more than 2 hours there. Entrance is 8 Euros...which is on the steeper side. (Again, history and views are amazing, but 8 Euros???). Coupled with the fact that it takes roughly 20-25 minutes to reach by bus, you might not want to go there if you are on the short visit to Pressburg.
    Other negative is this stupid pro-Capitalist propaganda you see around the area of the castle: some museum and monuments to Iron Curtain, which ruin the vibe. Sure, 1st Cold War was not a nice time, but also read some books about why it started from non-fascist (I mean non-capitalist) historians. For a balanced view if you get the drift. One "monument" was even unveiled by HER MAAAA-JESTY Elizabeth II and contained the quote by such lumineer of humanism as Winston (insert his famous quote about Bengal Famine) Churchill.
    But in short, still a solid trip. If you like castles, this one is for you.

    This is the most popular statue (or piece of art) in the Old Town. It is a happy worker exiting the sewer to have a break. Quirky, whimsical, political? I heard many explanations about the meaning behind this work, so who knows the real story? Just enjoy it, and watch the crowds of people taking selfies or photos with it. It is just one of several humorous work of art in the Old Town.

    This art nouveau church is worth the short walk from the old town. We could only look inside but the architecture and decor is definitely unique.

    A visit to Brataslava , the easy going historic capital city of Slovakia would not be complete without a journey up to the gleaming white Hrad Castle majestically crowning the low hill overlooking the old town below...The walk up the hill is not steep or arduous with a choice of quaint cafes for a rest stop....I arrived fresh and eager at the imposing castle bastions... I sauntered around the manicured gardens and took in the broad panoramic views before immersing myself in what the castle had to offer...The initial history of the settlement of the hill and rudimentary construction of a timber fortress to the modern day palace was fascinating as was the display of the rare locally made porcelain and silverware... Archeological finds to mediaeval Christian iconography and the broad history of Slovakia were covered in full....It was really a great day out at the iconic Hrad Castle , Brataslava , Slovakia.

    Good example of a Russian Post Soviet memorial. The road up there without gps is less clear by walk, but worth due to the high wnd neighbourhood. No outlets at and in close approximate, hence it is 4.

    Amazing sculptures with art which will suit all tastes. I am not an art lover but it was worth the 40min bus ride (number 90) from bratislava thru the villages and countryside. We planned to grab lunch at the cafe, but they sold nothing for lunch, just cake and nuts, most annoying. Highly recommended though.

    Well worth visiting the ufo tower. Good views over the old city and the river Danube.
    The lift up is just a short ride and then up a few steps to the viewing platform.
    I had a beer in the cafe/ restaurant which was nice to warm up inside and relax overlooking the city.

    Michael's Gate and the tower rising above are hard to miss in the Old Town. You can buy tickets in a nearby store to gain entry and climb the stairs for a panoramic view if the city. Interesting architecture that stands out. Certainly worth a peek.

    This quaint town square features interesting buildings that are colorful and well-maintained. You can see the town hall (with a tower), some embassies, a fountain, a palace and several restaurants nearby. It's not large, but worth a short visit.

    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.

    This is a beautiful cathedral in Old Town near Bratislava Castle. Though not large, it is historically significant as a coronation site for Hungarian kings. It is definitely worthwhile to stop in.

    Great place to stroll down in the evening. It’s very well laid out and has many many gelatos down the sides. On a warm day it’s great to have an ice cream and sit and watch the world go by. A favorite spot of mine.

    The Slovak Philharmonia resides in the "Reduta" - the Bratislava concert hall built in the 18th century. Recently completely renovated. A big sponsor was the Norwegian state - there are historical bonds between Norway and Slovakia.
    Latest step in the renovation process was the installation of the new concert organ.
    Presently Slovakia's largest instrument. And it sounded just great!

    It's not a big concert hall, but the intimacy is on the other hand fully there. You feel you are almost in the orchestra's lap, so to speak.
    Acoustics very good and chamber music sounds great. Surprisingly, so does also a full orchestra. And the Slovak Philharmonic has indeed become a very, very fine European orchestra. Strings have luster - as common in former east orchestras - but the brass was a revelation!
    Tight playing in the revealing acoustics.

    Enjoy a concert there - it's not in any way expensive. Not for what you get from this lovely orchestra!

    Highly reccommend a visit!

    PS Unfortunately most attached photos here on TA shows not the "Reduta" building, but the Opera house.... or more correct: the Slovak National Theatre.
    They are close, just across the square - nevertheless it's two different buildings.
