A Curate’s Egg: Good in Parts
Oct 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed our visit to Bratislava Castle, the guides were very helpful and we especially enjoyed the basement with its collection of Celtic artefacts.

Although the castle was gutted by fire and entirely rebuilt it has been done very well: However some of the rooms upstairs feel a bit empty and there’s not a lot to see up there, Except for the beautiful views up and down the Danube.

The English translations from the Czech information boards provide some amusement and Bemusement because they are very difficult to understand and not written in standard English. Also, the Treasury, which contains a collection of fine silver items would benefit from the employment of a silver cleaner. There is not much point in displaying silver unless it is gleaming.

There is a fabulous equestrian statue in the forecourt of the castle and the gateways into the forecourt are topped by very unusual sculptures which look like mannequins wearing armour - really splendid!!

Beautiful exterior; nothing inside
Oct 2020
The castle is amazing to see from outside, especially the front terrace with its statue of Svatopluk I of Moravia. The grounds make for a pleasant walk, with various statues. The interior is a disappointment; there is basically nothing there.

Offers great views
Sep 2021
Didn't go inside the castle museum, but the views from outside (of Old Town and surrounds) were great. Outside you can also see a cool statue of King Svatopluk, and entrance gates with, essentially, armored mannequins (okay, that's not what they are, but that's what they look like).

The inner courtyard is a nice place to grab some shade and sit on a bench.

Big museum, nice views
Aug 2021
The museum was very big with lots of different topics. Not all of it is interesting but with the amount of exhibits you can skip the bits you don't find interesting. The staff were very friendly (the security guy checking tickets) and best of all the student price is less than half the full price :)

Must see in Bratislava
Aug 2021 • Solo
It is a must-see in Bratislava, whether you choose to visit the inside museum or not. You can admire the remarkable architecture, the baroque gardens and a beautiful view of the city

Bratislava Castle dominates the city. It includes gardens, parks, museum and interesting monuments. There are many places offering great views over Danube and over the city.

Not the original one, but worths the visit
Aug 2020
Unfortunately, the original one burned down, so that’s a reconstruction. The rooms are mostly empty; the nicest surprise was an exhibition of old advertising plates, which, as a Communication student and as a fond of this kind of things, I really appreciated.

Beautiful scenery
Jan 2021 • Friends
We visited the castle 🏰 in a very warm day. I would recommend taking a hat and water during summer months as the castle is located on a hill.

It offers majestic views and the garden is well kept.
