     Bratislava Castle stands on an isolated rocky hill of the Little Carpathians directly above the Danube river. The castle hill has been inhabited for thousands of years thanks to its strategic position in the center of Europe.
     Many legends are connected with the history of the castle. The construction of a new castle of stone started in the 10th century.
     The massive rectangular building has four corner towers. Part of the exterior walls and the inside corridors are fragments of old Gothic and Renaissance design elements.
     Because of its size and location, the Castle has been a dominant feature of the city for centuries. Its location provides excellent views of Bratislava.
