Located a few miles west of Bratislava, this castle was once part of the Roman border in the first century A.D. and later became the seat of the Great Moravian Empire and a strategic post during the Turkish Wars.

Great views over Morava mouth into Danube, the castle ruin would benefit of additional historic context. Partially closed in winter 2017-18 (including the exhibition, might be the reason for the perceived lack of information).

This is a 1/2-day trip (or less) from Bratislava and was well worth our time for a few reasons. Even though Napoleon destroyed much of the castle as his forces were retreating, the ruins that are left tell an interesting story and go much farther...More

Hi, I'm not sure if you can book in advance but it any case it's never that busy. The ticket booth was empty when we went mid morning and will only take you a minute or so to buy tickets. Enjoy!
