What You Can Expect

Bratislava by Night: Walking Tour

See all the famous sights of Bratislava on this walking tour

Begin your tour at the Radisson Blu Carlton hotel in central Bratislava. Meet your friendly guide and walk through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, nestled beneath Bratislava Castle.
As you stroll, hear anecdotes about Bratislava’s past, and pass elegant palaces, churches and townhouses, all prettily illuminated in the darkness.
Climb the hillside to Bratislava Castle as your guide shares its history. Admire the exterior of the monumental building with its four turrets, and at the top, stroll around the picturesque grounds.  Head up one of towers and drink in the views of the sparkling Old Town and Danube River below.

Descend into the lanes of the Old Town and pass the lovely Neo-Renaissance façade of the 19th-century Slovak National Theatre. Snap photos as your guide explains how the productions staged here provided — and still give —  an important fillip to Slovakian national pride. 

Continue down the enchanting, lit-up streets and admire buildings such as the Reduta, a former granary that’s now home to the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra and annual Bratislava Music Festival.

Cross the Danube to absorb the evening views of the river, and finish your tour on a high note, with a visit to the famous UFO Observation Deck. 

Ride the elevator up to the 312-foot (95-meter) high open-air observation deck, so called for its saucer-like shape, and take in the bird’s eye views of the city center, and in the other direction, floodlit Devin Castle perched on a rock above the Danube.

Then, see the illuminated city from another vantage point — the circular restaurant just below the deck. Enjoy a drink (own expense) as you take in the sights from here, and then follow your guide back to the starting point, where your tour concludes.

Excellent tour! Because we were in the area so close to Christmas, my husband and I had a private tour. The guide was very knowledgable, friendly and a little bit quirky as well. The night was topped off by a spectacular view from the UFO observation tower completely empty and a non-alcoholic drink at the bar.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2017

it was a very informative tour. our guide, milan, was very knowledgeable of the history of bratislava. it was just a little too cold for a night tour in the fall. though, after a few minutes of walking, it kinda warmed up a little. a tripod is necessary for taking pictures. dress appropriately. otherwise, i would recommend this tour.
