The place is close to old town and worth a visit because of its breathtaking view of Danube and old town. Do take a walk around the castle as it gives you an overview of entire Bratislava.

The Caste is the seat of the Bishop and the church houses one of the oldest original churches in the country dating back to 9th century. Well restored castle worth the time and a visit.
