The number one attraction in the country and for good reason. Bratislava Castle stands proudly above the city is protects, a stunning construction with four towers marking its corners, offering some of the most incredible views in all of Europe. The vistas of the Slovak capital are one thing, but on a clear day you can even see into Austria and Hungary from this vantage point. The castle is a stunning complex of entrance gates, courtyards, gardens and more, a truly regal residence for the wealthiest of the wealthy through the city’s history. It actually spent a large portion of its modern history in ruin, before a massive restoration project began in 1957, a project that was completed to much fanfare in 2010. One of Europe’s great city castles and nothing less.
