For the second time we are sightseeing in Bratislava Slovakia and I can tell you that I do not think this is a waste of time. If you remember a few years ago I wrote a detailed article about Top 10 attractions in Slovakia and there I introduced you where to see what. Now some of them can be repeated, but this should not bother you, especially since the photos are different and of course better.
Bratislava Castle and the Crown Tower Bratislava Castle is the main castle in Bratislava. It is located on a hill just above the Danube in the middle of the city. From there there is an incredible view of the city, of Austria and if the weather is good, and of Hungary. The massive rectangular building of the castle has four towers at its four ends.
The Blue Church is a little over 100 years old, but is one of the most beautiful temples in Bratislava. Its blue facade is decorated with exquisite mosaics, which is why it is a favorite place for weddings and baptisms of the inhabitants of the city. Gate Michael Michael's Gate is the only gate that is preserved to this day by the medieval fortifications of the city. It was built in 1300, and its current appearance is the result of baroque reconstructions in 1758.
UFO observation deck and SNP bridge If you like the views from above, climb to the UFO observation deck, located on the pylons of the SNP bridge, which connects the two banks of the Danube. Its height of 95 m makes the panorama stunning, and on a clear day you can see the landscape up to 100 km away.
At the top there is a restaurant where you can reserve a table at sunset for a special occasion. Trinity Church Trinity Church , often confused with the Church of St. Trinity, is baroque and is located in the old town of Bratislava.
The Cathedral of St. Martin is located on the western border of Bratislava’s Old Town. It is the largest, most elegant and oldest church in the city. The shape of the cathedral symbolizes the crucifixion.
The Old Town Hall is one of the oldest stone buildings in Bratislava, and the oldest town hall in Slovakia. It was completed in the 15th century in Gothic style. It is located in the city center. Read more about the Old Town Hall.
The Bratislava Zoo is located in the forest on the Little Carpathians hill. The specimens you can see there are about 1000. Read more about the zoo. Archbishop's Palace Built in the 18th century, this classical-style palace is where Napoleon signed the Pressburg Peace Treaty of 26 December 1805, concluded between the Austrian Empire and France after his victory at the Battle of Austerlitz. The palace has a gallery where you can see a collection of six 17th-century English tapestries.
The statues of Bratislava In several places around Bratislava you will see metal statues that tell stories in a playful way. A bronze statue of Napoleon's soldier leaning on a bench is reminiscent of Napoleon's siege of the city in 1805 and 1809. It is located on the main square, Hlavne namestie in the old town. One block away is the monument to Schöne Naci, a local eccentric who was known for his kindness and elegance in the early 20th century. On Panska Street 1 is one of the most photographed statues in the city - that of a soldier with a helmet protruding from the shaft.
Grasalkovich Castle This summer palace was built in 1760 for the adviser to the Hungarian Empress Maria Theresa, Anton Grasalkovich. Receptions and meetings of nobles were held here, including Josef Haydn himself who played here, and today the building is the official residence of the Slovak president.
