Bratislava I - Old Town

This is the central district, also called Staré Mesto - The Old Town. With its location and the historical center it is the most popular district to seek accommodation, job and entertainment. It is the smallest out of five districts. It spreads out on the left bank of Danube and offers a lovely walk around the historical pedestrian zone Korzo and other sights, like the Castle with a great view of the city, churches and small palaces, the Slovak National Theatre and number of charming little streets preserving some of the old Bratislava´s atmosphere. Not to be missed is the memorial Slavín towering above the city. Get in touch with nature in the original and untouched city park Horský Park or visit the modern shopping mall Eurovea with a buzzing park at the river, children´s playground and a variety of bars and restaurants.

The neighborhoods such as Palisady, Horsky Park and Castle hill with their historical apartment buildings and high ceilings are very popular residential areas. This location is sought also by international institutions, such as embassies and international schools. Property is relatively expensive in comparison to other districts but its central location and quality of housing make it a convenient place to live. Parking, however can, be a problem.
