Bratislava Castle Bratislava Castle

Visit the main castle in Bratislava during your stay here. Bratislava Castle was built between the 9th and 18th centuries and rebuilt in the late 1950s after a fire had gutted the building. It certainly takes the cake for one of the most beautiful gardens in Eastern Europe.

The castle is best enjoyed at sunset when you can watch the sun duck below the horizon and the city below glow with a beautiful orange hue.
