Upon arriving in Bratislava, you will see mostly notice Bratislava Castle sitting on a hill overseeing the entire city. The grounds of the castle are free to walk around as you please and you will see many locals taking strolls during the early evening. While once a royal residence, the castle now is home to the Slovak National Museum- Museum of History, and has artifacts dating from the Middle Ages all the way to the present. With a valid student ID entrance to the museum is only 4€. If you are a fan of contemporary art, the Slovak National Gallery has a wonderful and diverse collection of artwork. Entrance is free for everyone so take your time and feel free to visit multiple times. There is a very nice café located on the bottom floor of the museum in case you get a little hungry or need a coffee break during your visit. The Slovak National Theatre always seems to have a wonderful and rich schedule, if you are lucky you may be able to see a production or concert at a very low price if you go to the box office the day of. Michael’s Gate acts as a sort of marker to indicate central and historical Bratislava. You can climb up this gate which use to belong the old city fortification from the 14th century to gain a different kind of view of the city. Another must-see is the Blue Church or formally known as St. Elizabeth’s Church. The church is a little outside of the historical part of the city, but the walk is worth it. The church is beautifully decorated with mosaics and its color makes it one of a kind. The pictures you take of the church will be gorgeous, but they cannot replicate the beauty of the church itself. If you are not afraid of heights, visit the UFO located on the SNP Bridge. You will be able to see the entire city from this point making it a great place to watch the sunset. There is also a restaurant located on the observation deck for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. It costs 7.40€ to go up to the deck.
