You have already found accommodation in Bratislava. You will spend some time in the capital, and whether you decide to visit it without a plan and go where your feet will lead you or you already have your plans, a tip for an interesting and not quite familiar corner can be obtained.
Such a corner in one of Bratislava's parks is also a Gothic tower - or rather its upper part - growing directly from the ground. How did she get there and how to get there?
If you take a walk through the Old Town from Patio Hostel, you will surely find the Franciscan Church, near the Main Square. Its existence dates back to the 13th century and if you are a lover of history and architecture, it is certainly worth seeing the church not only from the outside but also from the inside. Over the years, parts of the church and the adjacent monastery were added, repaired, disappeared and manufactured again, and today, both exterior and interior, Gothic, Neo-Gothic, Baroque, Classicist and Rococo elements are mixed.
Looking at this building, many people do not even think that its tower is not quite the original tower that belonged to the building. Its upper part is four centuries younger than the rest. It is due to the earthquake that shook Bratislava in 1897 and despite the efforts of some architects to preserve the tower as a whole, security was paramount and decided to dismantle its top and rebuild it. Part of the tower was transferred to Sad Janko Kráľ, where it stands to this day. It is a favorite place for photographers (amateur and professional), so if you are a photo lover or just have an aesthetic instagram, you will surely like it.
You can get to the interesting monument from Patio hostel Bratislava quite quickly and easily. It takes 25 minutes on foot and along the road you cross the Old Bridge and the Danube, which can also be very photogenic, especially during sunset.
In conclusion, our hostel wishes you a pleasant time spent in Bratislava, whether you are inspired by our tips or set out to find interesting corners on your own.
