Someone says that the capital city of Bratislava is definitely one of the top Eastern European cities to visit, and it’s popularly known for being home to the impressive Danube River running through the city. I do not know whether it is true or not. You should go and look at it yourself.
That day, I walked around the city with the sightseeing map.
Slovak National Museum has an elegant building along the banks of the Danube with the pillar of lion statue out front of the house.
Slovak National Museum has 2.4 million objects in its collection, which makes it one of the most important museums of natural science in Europe.
The Slovak National Museum is the most important scientific research and cultural education institution, with the largest and best collections in the field of museum studies in Slovakia.
Clock Museum Bratislava
The Rococo-style house of the Clock Museum is one of the few buildings in the area below Bratislava Castle surviving in its original state from earlier times. It was built in 1760 – 1765.
The Clock Museum is really interesting for machine lovers and clock collectors.
Slovak National Theatre
The Slovak National Theatre is Neo-Renaissance theatre building in the Old Town of Bratislava, which opened on 14 April 2007.
The outside and inside of the theatre are elegant, smart and beautiful.

Esterházy Palace is a Neo-Renaissance-style building in the Old Town, Bratislava, near the Danube riverfront, built in the 1870s.

Nativity from Galgóc, originally on the main altar of St. Martin’s at Pozsony, 1480s.
The above pictures are the works by Gillis Coignet, “Vanitas,” ca. 1580 and by Rembrandt van Rijn, “In Oriental Camp,” 1641.
The Grassalkovich Palace is the residence of the president of Slovakia. It is situated on Hodžovo námestie, near the Summer Archbishop’s Palace.
The building is a Rococo and late Baroque summer palace with a French garden. It was built in 1760 for Count Antal Grassalkovich, a Hungarian noble serving as the head of the Hungarian Chamber, by architect Anton Mayerhofer.
I continued to explore the Bratislava City merrily.
