Perched on top of a hill, the rectangular shaped Bratislava Castle dominates the skyline of Bratislava. The castle was severely destroyed in a fire in 1811 and was under renovation for over a century and the renovation still continues. The current structure of the castle is mostly a 1950s reconstruction. The castle offers stunning views of Bratislava and in clear weather conditions, views of Austria and Hungary. The castle is considered as the most iconic symbol of the city.
