From the castle to its quirky statues, from the blue churches to its nightlife - livelier than you might think - are you ready to get to know Slovakia's capital? What to see and do in Bratislava 1. Castle Climb up to the Castle, undoubtedly the star of Bratislava. If you want to get to know its history well (and also take the opportunity to discover the rest of the city's main sights), we recommend you sign up for some of the tours and activities around the city. It is undoubtedly the symbol of the city. Surrounded by walls and with beautiful views of the Danube, it stands on top of a hill just outside the old town. Don't miss it because it's a must-see in Bratislava. Tip: we recommend you take this free tour to learn all the secrets and history of this castle. 2. St. Michael's Gate and Free tour Head to St. Michael's Gate, one of the four gates that once formed the city fortress (and the only one still standing). St. Michael's Gate and the nearby St. Michael's Bridge are two of the stops on this free tour of Bratislava. Don't hesitate to sign up (it's free, though of course you'll have to tip the guide at the end). 3. Bratislava Cathedral Visit the Bratislava Cathedral. Dedicated to St. Martin, it is the most important religious building in the city thanks to its historical value: it is here, in fact, that the coronations of several sovereigns were celebrated. 4. Grassalkovicov Palace Admire the Grassalkovicov Palace, where the President of Slovakia is lucky enough to live. It is the white house of the country. It is in the rococo-tardo-baroque style and has a beautiful garden, which is nowadays open to the public.
