Meet your guide at the centrally located Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel to begin your tour. Stroll through the charming, cobblestoned streets of Bratislava Old Town toward Bratislava Castle, a gleaming white structure located on a hill. When you reach the top, enjoy the castle grounds as your guide explains the castle’s history dating back to the Stone Age. Then, climb up one of the castle’s four towers and take in amazing views of the city and Danube River.
Trek back down the hill, follow your guide through the meandering, narrow streets of Bratislava Old Town and admire the Neo-Renaissance architecture of the 19th century Slovak National Theatre. Your guide explains how drama productions at the theater served an important role in reviving national pride and how today you can see marvelous performances of opera, ballet and drama.
Visit more beautiful architecture at Reduta, home of the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra, and learn how Reduta was built in 1915 on what used to be a stone granary in the 18th century. Today, Reduta is a venue for extravagant balls and the annual Bratislava Music Festival.
Cross the Danube River and end your tour on a high note by riding an elevator up to the UFO Observation Deck, 312 feet (95 meters) above ground. At the top, take in panoramic views on the open-air platform, where the eastern side gives you a romantic, lit-up view of the city center and the western side rewards you with views of Devin Castle and the river.
Enjoy a leisurely drink at the round-shaped restaurant located below the deck (own expense), and note how the city lights have turned Bratislava into a different sight to behold. Your guide will then lead you back to the Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel.Highlights
