The castle, which towers high above the city on a hill, is Bratislava’s most prominent landmark. The castle was originally the seat of the rulers. Today, it is a symbol of Bratislava and houses the Museum of History. From the terrace, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind view of the city.

The castle was the residence of Hungarian kings, whose crown jewels were kept here. The Museum of History brings this period to life for visitors. The treasure chamber is also located here and is open daily except for Monday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
