What to see in Bratislava

Bratislava Attractions

Bratislava is an old, historically-rich city, and by European standards remains delightfully undiscovered.

The pedestrianised Old Town is home to many of the city's top attractions, with centuries-old streets, squares and buildings allowing visitors to step back in time. Landmarks include the Old Town Hall, St Martin's Cathedral and Main Square. The historic centre is also packed with restaurants and cafes, for sightseeing pit stops. There are numerous galleries and museums in Bratislava, including some unexpected ones, like the Pharmacy Museum and the Museum of Clocks. The Bratislava Castle is a must-see, and another fun activity is a boat ride on the Danube, which can take travellers to some of the attractions along the banks, including the castle ruins at Devin and the interesting Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum. The spa resort town of Piestany is nearby and the perfect pampering excursion from Bratislava.

The city has a busy cultural calendar, and travellers interested in attending performances, exhibitions and festivals should visit the Tourism Information Office, which hands out information on all events in Bratislava.
