Sightseeing in Bratislava - what to see. Complete travel guide

Bratislava is a magnificent and ancient city that always amazes visitors by the atmosphere of coziness and silence that is contrasting to fast and stressful life of modern urbanites. You will need to spend many days in order to view all places of interest and historical sites. We recommend starting your acquaintance with this city from its historical core represented by Bratislavsky Hrad.
Preego is a famous restaurant, which choice of dishes will please even the most discerning critics. It is considered the best restaurant dedicated to national cuisine in Bratislava. Thanks … Open
This majestic castle was built yet in the 10th century. Its towers have several observation areas where you can enjoy the panoramic views of the city. If the weather is clear, you can even see Hungarian lands. The Gates of Saint Michael is one of the oldest buildings in the city. The gates were built in 1300. Later, in 1758, they were fully renovated and this changed their look. Today these gates are known as a masterpiece of the baroque style. One more old building is Main Palace, which is created in the neoclassic style. Its building was finished in the end of the 18th century and it was created by order of the archbishop Josef Batthyàny. Also don’t forget to visit another famous building – Devin Castle. This palace was built in the place where Danube meets Morava. This location was traditionally well-known as one of the most important trading routes, so first settlements in the region of the confluence of these two rivers started appearing yet in the late Stone Age.
Among new architectural buildings we should definitely pay our attention to the new bridge across Danube. The bridge has only one pier and is considered the longest pendant bridge in the world. Theatre connoisseurs should definitely visit the Slovak National Theatre, the building of which was finished in 1886. Other places of interest that are traditionally popular among visitors include the St Martin Cathedral, Old Town Hall, the Franciscan church, and the Church of St. Helen. All mentioned sights feature just a small part of routes available for tourists in Bratislava. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Flower Clock in Vienna

From the series “Enchanting flower clocks built by humans”
The flower clock in Vienna is one of the few that was designed using plants of contrasting colors. It’s very easy to find this installation in the city park in Vienna, as it’s situated not far from the entrance. You can admire this amazing attraction from late spring to mid-autumn. In this period, the bright bed with carved hands always looks flawless. … Read further

Seegrotte

From the series “The scariest mines in the world”
The upper tiers of the mine have been converted into a museum; they store a very interesting exhibition about the life and work of miners. Lower tiers outside of the flood zone have retained their dark charm, so they’re not recommended to people who are afraid of the dark. Shimmering light gives special mystique and mystery to mines, and in some areas it’s almost absent, so visitors will have an opportunity to plunge into total darkness for a few minutes. … Read further

Sightseeing in Slovakia: things to see

Magnificent churches remain the most famous landmarks of Kosice. The central street of the city is the location of St. Elisabeth Cathedral - the largest church in the country. The height of the main tower, which was built in the 11th century, is 59 metres. Beautiful gothic altar decorated with skillfully made drawings remains one of the most precious artifacts of the church. In the 15th century, St. Michael's Chapel was built near the cathedral. Inner premises of the chapel are no less interesting than its outer design as there are beautiful drawings and frescos that depict important historic events. Until the middle of the 18th century, a graveyard was located near the chapel. Later the graveyard was turned into a park. … Open
