We were driving from Budapest, Hungary to Salzburg, Austria and decided that a short detour to another country enroute would be opportune...and Bratislava, Slovakia was that stop.

Have to visit this Catle. Nice view for the river and for town/oldtown and for the bridge. Not a long and hard trip to visit. If you have some free minutes just take a look.

The castle itself is not so interesting, but the view from several viewing platforms is great! It also looks great from down by the riverside and in photos. Some nice restaurants as you go up or down.

I was there on sunday and entry was free, other days you need to pay to enter castle. And yes,there is many things to see inside because castle is huge historic museum from ancient to medieval ages.
