A short walk from Bratislava Old Town, and nearly opposite of Bratislava Crowne Plaza. After war building was used as House of Communist Pioneers and Youth. The building was renovated extensively after the collapse of the communist regime.

It‘s a lovely building just a 5 minute walk from my hotel and old town. It has a nice public garden.

Just a small government building off of a main road. You can see changing of guards but you can't get inside. There is a small park behind that is far from grand. Ok photo and landmark if you get lost after a few drinks!

Just loved walking around the Old town. Felt like walking back in time. Lots of little streets off of the main square, filled with bars, restaurants, shops. A nice place to visit. You can walk everywhere.

Well preserved castle which is seat of president at this time. There is a big garden at rear which is open to public. You can sit and relax. You cannot visit castle for safety reason.
