Best Travel Experiences in Bratislava
Bratislava is a great place to walk around and plenty of activities to perform around the city streets. There are several street artists from place to place, all of whom make your trip far more memorable. They provide character to the town, whether it's the Slovak Robin Hood playing the shepherd's pipe or street performers offering to paint your image or costumed individuals.
Our Bratislava Tour Packages will take you to the core of the city which is the Old Town. You can access the Old Town through the only surviving mediaeval gateway, Michalská brána a vea (St Michael's Gate and Tower), which houses a military museum and a viewing tower. Two sections of a single street, Michalská and Ventruska, are studded with opulent Baroque buildings, the university library and numerous dining options. The former Hungarian parliament is located at Michalská 1 and Mozart House, where the six-year-old Mozart entertained the Palffy family, is at number 10.
The most important destination to visit in Bratislava is undoubtedly, the Bratislava Castle. Bratislava Castle, magnificently restored in Renaissance style, appears to have been plucked straight out of a picture book. There is a history museum inside, but many of the spaces appear underused and empty. The Crown Tower was built in the 13th century, which offers panoramic views, is the castle's oldest original feature. The late-baroque Assumption of the Virgin Mary (1762–3) artwork by Anton Schmidt in the Music Hall is another highlight. The well-kept baroque gardens behind the castle are accessible without a fee. Make sure you book one of our Bratislava Tour Packages so that you can see this beautiful structure in person!
Top Things to Do in Bratislava
Hlavné nám is the centre of Bratislava's history, festivals and upscale cafe culture (Main Sq).

For those who are interested to explore museums, there is a well maintained museum in Bratislava - the Museum of City History for them to enjoy.

In the vaulted rooms, you will also find religious artwork and saints' bones that are dimly lit.
