Top 5 Things to Do in Bratislava

Explore the Old Town: Although Bratislava is only a relatively small city, it packs in a lot of incredible sights. If there’s just one place you must visit in Slovakia tours, head to the Old Town. Amble through the ancient alleyways and palatial squares to discover the most wonderful Baroque buildings and landmarks. From pretty fountains and historical monuments to lively pavement cafes, the Old Town is a pure joy to explore. The four medieval gates that were built to protect the city are certainly worth seeing. Michael’s Gate is around 51 metres high and dates back to the 14th century.

Visit St Elizabeth’s Blue Church: You can’t miss St Elizabeth’s Blue Church because, as its name suggests, it’s painted a beautiful shade of blue. Just to the east of the Old Town, this Art Nouveau building was created in the early 20th century as the local grammar school’s chapel, and it has now become one of the most iconic sights in Bratislava. Its exterior is adorned with stucco mouldings and Romanesque and Baroque designs, which bear a resemblance to the types of grand buildings you’d see in a fairy tale. Inside, a striking oil painting of St Elizabeth hangs above the altar and the pews are ornately painted in gold and blue.

Visit Bratislava Castle: Taking centre stage in the heart of the capital and looming over the city and the River Danube is Bratislava Castle. The hilltop castle stands on a fortified site and was originally built as a lookout and stronghold before becoming home to the Kings of Royal Hungary and the Hungarian crown jewels, which would remain there for the next 200 years. From the castle terrace, views stretch uninterrupted across the Austria and Hungary borders. Nowadays, exhibitions for the National Museum are held inside, teaching you about the history of Slovakia from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Slovak National Gallery: Lovers of history and art will be in their element at the Slovak National Gallery. Inside the 18th-century palace there are exhibitions showcasing Baroque and Gothic art and fascinating artefacts dating back to the early14th century. The gallery is made up of a complex of buildings and its central building was once a Baroque residence on the banks of the Danube. As well as housing a large collection of early European art, there’s also an historical library, which currently holds more than 8,000 books, maps and magazines.

Grassalkovich Palace: Taking pride of place on Hodžovo Square just outside of the Old Town, the Rococo-style Grassalkovich Palace has been the official presidential residence since 1760 and is worth visiting during tours in Slovakia. Sadly, the palace isn’t open to the public, however, you can walk around the formal gardens and admire the architecture from the outside. Within the gardens there are tree-lined paths, manicured lawns, a fountain, and a statue of the empress on horseback.
