About my tour

This tip-based 2.5-hour walking city tour will show you all the top attractions in the historic city center of Bratislava.
The guided tour starts at Rybné námestie next to the hotel Park Inn and it ends at Bratislava Castle. After the tour, you can join me and we can go to the city center together. :)
As your expert local guide, I will take you to its top landmarks like:

  • The Cathedral
  • Salvator Pharmacy
  • St. Michael’s Gate
  • Bratislava street statues
  • Opera House
  • Primate’s Palace
  • Bratislava Castle  

The official end of the tour is at Bratislava Castle, but you can join me, and we will return together to the Old Town. The very end of the tour is in front of St. Martin Cathedral on Rudnay Square.
Join me on this introduction to Bratislava's Castle and Old Town.
It’s a great way to orientate yourself in the city at a price to suit everybody's budget. :)

A big part of the tour is suitable for pets, BUT dogs are not allowed to enter the gardens of Bratislava Castle. :(
