I have to say that this is probably my least favorite castle that I have ever seen in Europe. It is situated nicely on a hill which affords a nice view of the Danube, but there is really not much to see on the inside. There is a nondescript gift shop where you can spend a few minutes too. The walk up the hill is not too bad, and there are a few statues to take a look at on the way.

A castle with a view, what could be more enchanting? Getting to this medievil castle is half the battle as it sits on a rather steep hill. I promise the effort is worth it though! The building is monolithic, imposing and full of history, but the panoramic views that can be had here are simply sublime.

This stunning castle is instantly noticeable across Bratislava's skyline, and looks like something out of a fairytale - probably due in part to its four towers. It's set up on a hill directly across from the River Danube, and if you make the climb up you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the city. If the outside isn't enough to satisfy your curiosity you can also pay around six euros to see the inside, and learn a little more about the interesting history behind Bratislava's main attraction.

Do yourself a favor and drive to it. It is a long walk from old town and all up hill. We didn't bother going in, but it is worth seeing up close. Impressive!

Bratislava Castle is a huge rectangular building set high up above the Danube river on a rocky hill top. The castle has stood here for thousands of years, thanks to its strategic position in Central Europe, but has been razed to the ground a rebuilt countless times throughout history.

This huge rectangular building with four corner towers stands on a rocky hill, directly above the Danube river and right in the middle of Bratislava. It's probably THE outstanding feature of the city. Excellent view of Bratislava, nearby Austria, and even Hungary (in good weather).

Εξωτερικά είναι πολύ όμορφο τόσο το πρωί όσο και το βράδυ που είναι φωτισμένο. Εμείς επιλέξαμε να κάνουμε περίπατο κι ανεβήκαμε με τα πόδια, όμως υπήρχαν και κάτι τρενάκια που έκαναν τη διαδρομή. Εσωτερικά η έκθεση δε με ενθουσίασε, όμως η θέα που έχει είναι μοναδική! Έχεις στην κυριολεξία όλη την πόλη στα πόδια σου!
