A Must Visit in Slovakia: Bratislava’s Old Town Hall is a Place To Make You Smile

A Must Visit in Slovakia

Unbeknownst to all of us, Slovakia’s oldest city hall and one of the oldest stone buildings still standing in Bratislava is a beautiful sight to behold. Housing the oldest museum of the city and owning a tower that offers a charming view on the city center to its visitors, it is a must-see place you should not miss when visiting Bratislava.

As we were pressed for time, we did not bother to go up and see the colorful buildings of the Old Town through the view from the inside. Instead, we roamed around to see the rest of the Old Town, like the Main square and the Roland’s fountain. Though, I heard that you can have a clear view on the UFO tower, St. Martin’s Cathedral as well as the castle from the Old Town Hall.

It’s hard to resist the area around as there is always something going on – markets, concerts, or other types of cultural program. Be on the lookout for some of the statues that you might bump into, literally. You may also want to get your portrait sketched out while basking the full view of the afternoon fountain view of the old town area. It’s a distinct kind of calm, one that you can only exactly pinpoint in Bratislava’s Old Town.

Opening Hours: Open daily except Mon, Tue - Fri 10:00–5:00 pm, Sat - Sun 11:00-6:00 pm
Tickets: 1 € if you only want to walk up to the Old Town Hall / 5 € per person if you purchase a ticket also to enter the Museum of City History / 6 € if you purchase a combine ticket which is valid also for the Apponyi House (Museum of Viticulture and Museum of Period Rooms)
Address: Hlavné námestie (Main square)
