Description

Bratislava Castle - an ancient castle inBratislava, one of its symbols, main landmarks and one of the central attractions. It rises above the high bank of the Danube, standing out with bright white walls and a red roof against the background of the rest of the landscape. And although this landmark is included in the list of national cultural monuments of Slovakia, for several decades the castle lay in ruins and was restored only in the second half of the twentieth century, in Soviet times.

Since the castle was recently renovated and it isnoticeably upon closer examination, from a tourist point of view, the most interesting in Bratislava city is the view from it on the surrounding city and the Danube. This is perhaps the most spectacular thing to expect from a visit. The inner courtyard of the castle, where only a deep well is located, looks empty. If you wish, you can go to the museum, located in the castle and climb to the observation deck, but you can just walk under the fortress walls and on the terraces leading to the castle, from there you also have good views, the paths are well-kept and in the warm season everything is beautiful and green . At night, the castle is beautifully highlighted. Since it rises above the city in its very center, the castle can be clearly seen from almost anywhere in Bratislava.

A more interesting view is that except with Mosta SNPwhich in turn is visible from the Bratislava castle. In general, I would go there and there. The old city and these two sights can be safely viewed in one day, everything is close by.

In the XV century, the castle acquired late Gothic features. Later, the influence of the Renaissance and early Baroque predetermined the structure of the castle: it is a rectangular building with a courtyard, four corner towers and an entrance gate.
