Things To Do In Bratislava If You Have 24 Hours


Well so far I’ve been to Bratislava twice, both times with different people so of course I had to see same things with them, but there are always some new things to do in Bratislava. I gotta admit, I could do it all over again and again. You can always find a new cool bar/restaurant/sight/building so it doesn’t get boring at all! 24 hours in Bratislava should give you a brief overview of the city and Slovak culture.



So if you have few hours layover or you’re doing Eurotrip and have only 24 hours, here are some things to do in Bratislava!


  • Bratislava Castle
  • Hlavne Namestie (Main Square)
  • City Hall
  • Presidential Palace
  • St. Michael’s Tower & Street
  • Slavin War Memorial
  • The Primate’s Palace and Hall of Mirrors
  • Michael’s Gate
  • The Narrowest House in Europe (There is Kebab shop now)
  • SNP/UFO Bridge and UFO Restaurant

Just wander around Old City of Bratislava and you are going to pass most of this landmarks. No need to go into each and every one of them, but take time to check out at least one or two.





  • Saint’s Martin Cathedral
  • Kostol Trinitarov (Trinity Church)
  • Franciscan Church and Monastery
  • Capuchin Church and Monastery
  • Church and Convent of St. Elisabeth / Blue Church
  • St. Nicholas’ Church
  • Ursuline Church and Convent

There is quite a lot of churches in Bratislava so pick a few that you really want to see and take a peak inside, say a prayer and then continue to explore Bratislava. I would recommend to visit at least Saint’s Martin Cathedral, Trinity Church and Blue Church.

Things to do in Bratislava



  • Cumil
  • Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue
  • Schone Naci Statue
  • Statue of Hans Christian Andersen
  • Sculpture The Witch

These ones I would say are the main ones that you should see, but there is tons more since we could call Bratislava city of Statues cause it has it so many! Too many to see all of them if you have only 24 hours in Bratislava!

  • Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum
  • Nedbalka Gallery
  • Bratislava City Museum
  • Stm Muzeum Dopravy
  • Museum of Clocks
  • Railway Museum in Railway Depot Bratislava-Vychod
  • City Gallery of Bratislava
  • Natural History Museum

If you are a museum/gallery buff, then I guess you will check some of these out, but I usually don’t go to museums and galleries. I prefer to observe how is life in the city and see architecture, taste new food and drinks. That’s my kind of exploring!





In 24 hours in Bratislava, you should definitely try some typical Slovak dishes. I’ve listed few restaurants that have good Slovak food for you to try! There is going to be a lot of dumplings, with different cheeses, sauces and of course meat, especially pork! If you are with a friend try to order few different things and share, that’s how I always do it! And Dobrú Chuť (Which means enjoy your meal)!




If you’ve been to Bratislava before and you’ve seen it all, maybe it’s time to check Devin Castle, which is just a bit outside of Bratislava.


One of my favorite things to do in Bratislava are free city tours, especially when I have some people with me for the first time. So I would really recommend you to join for one of the Be Free Tours in Bratislava. You are going to get so many informations that you would never know if you wouldn’t join this tour! So go ahead and join them!

Accomodation – I would suggest you to book a hostel/hotel through either HotelsCombined or Booking, But if you want a whole apartment or something different try booking over Airbnb!

If you click on this Airbnb link and it’s first time for you to book something over Airbnb you will get 25$ discount!




Cheers and enjoy your stay in Bratislava!

    Did you get to do all those in 24hrs? 🙂 I was only there for 2 days when I went, it was raining all the time but that didn’t stop me from exploring! Good thing about this city is that all the important places of interests are walkable! And Slovak food is quite something! 🙂
