Editor's review

Crowning a renegade hill that seems to have escaped from the Little Carpathians, the Royal Castle has adorned Bratislava since time immemorial. The first stone fort was raised here in the tenth century but it was rebuilt many times over the years. During the early modern era the edifice was the main castle of the Kingdom of Hungary, but desecration during the Napoleonic Wars all but finished the place, and committed reconstruction did not begin again until as late as 1953. Today, you don't have to be a moustachioed nobleman to gain access, as a museum welcomes all comers.

A beautiful castle set atop a hill. Must-see.

Bratislava looks very beautiful. We hope to come here in June. We shall certainly visit the castle.

Often called 'The Upside Down Table' but that seems a little unfair!
