Standing on a rocky hill and overlooking the river, Bratislava Castle dominates the city and offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes, including the neighboring countries of Austria and Hungary. The massive, fully restored building is topped with four corner towers. Look for the well-conserved original part of the structure, the 15th-century Sigismund Gate. The castle houses the national museum and four halls exhibiting archaeological findings, such as the prehistoric statue of the Venus of Moravany. Catch a concert at the Baroque chapel, now converted into a music hall. If you get hungry, dine at the restaurant housed an erstwhile Baroque stable facing an English park.

Very nice place. Enter is free. Amazing view on Danube and Bratislava. Danube is green and strong with many tourist boat. There is souvenir shop, but it is very expensive. You can walk through castle and yard. It is unbelievable and unforgettable. Recommend to visit.
Very cute place. You can enjoy the views and gardens for free. If you want to get inside you have to pay for a ticket, the museum was not very big and with different things not related to the castle such as more contemporary history and modern art. If you are not a big fan you could skip it and enjoy instead the views and take pictures from outside the castle
