ROL Cruise recommends…

Stroll through Bratislava’s charming Old Town

Step back in and time and wander around Bratislava’s quaint and captivating Old Town. Get lost down unassuming side streets while taking in the medieval and gothic structures that line its cobblestone roads. Stop for coffee and a bite to eat at a local café or browse the shelves in one of Bratislava’s quaint boutiques.


Marvel at the views from Michael’s Gate

An iconic structure in Bratislava, Michael’s Gate is the only remaining medieval gate in the city. Not only is it free to experience this superior building up close, you can even venture inside and climb to the top, taking in the views of the patchwork of bright-orange rooftops that layer the city.


Uncover the history of Bratislava Castle

Situated on a rocky hilltop towering over the city, Bratislava Castle is a restored Baroque castle that dates all the way back to 907 AD. The perfect attraction for history lovers, you can learn all about the castle’s intriguing past, including its establishment in the stone age and its first known Celtic inhabitants.


Discover art and culture around every corner

No need to visit museums to catch a glimpse of Bratislava’s colourful architecture and art scene. Head down side streets and you’ll be met with bright, pastel-coloured buildings, graffiti art and street artists drawing portraits, dressed up in costumes or playing the shepherd’s pipe.
