The Bratislava Cultural Centre has prepared a series of interesting events for you. Guided walks around Bratislava. Experience at least one real date with the city and you will never look at Bratislava with the same eyes again – you will like it better!

In a year-long cycle of thematic walks you will get to know many interesting stories and unknown corners of Bratislava, important personalities and monuments, as well as events that shaped Bratislava.

You can discover the capital city from new perspectives in the company of guides and tour guides.

1. Dunajská Street

Date: 10 July 2024 at 17:00
Meeting place: 1 Dunajská Street, Bratislava

During a walk along the street, which basically never changed its name, we will talk about its history, people who lived here, old houses, and the infirmary, which no longer stands today. Some may remember the former skating rink or the traffic playground. We will also remember its famous inhabitant – Julius Satinsky, whose statue adorns the street, and the entrepreneur Rudolf Mandella, who lived here until he built the first skyscraper. And maybe we will also solve the dilemma – where exactly Wolfgang von Kempelen lived on this street.

Accompanied by Ingrid Desdevises. The walking route is wheelchair accessible.

2. Marital problems in the 17th Century

Date: 13 July 2024 at 17:00
Meeting place: Pálfyho Palace, Bratislava

During the 90-minute tour you will learn about the various marital troubles experienced by Palatine Paul IV. Pálffy during the reconstruction of Bratislava Castle and what his peer, Ján Amos Komenský, whose marital vicissitudes prompted him to create his most famous work, also disseminated in Prešpork. You will also hear the story of a scandalous divorce that took place in St. Martin’s Cathedral. We will also look at the marital vicissitudes caused by Count Esterházi to a married countess and what advice he then gave his sons for marriage. We will also not omit the timeless recommendations for choosing a life partner left to us by the Teacher of Nations back in the 17th century.

4. Dream and Reality in Architecture

Date: 17 July 2024 at 17:00
Meeting place: In front of the Old Market, Bratislava

Loosely following on from our walk dedicated to the period of the Slovak State, this time we will focus on its efforts to architecturally complete and reshape the city. Even before the collapse of the Second Czech-Slovak Republic, a number of interesting architectural solutions were created, which were further developed to reflect the “ideals of the new world order”. Let’s take a look together at which architectural dreams have been transformed into reality.

Accompanied by Pavol Adamka. The route of the walk is barrier-free.

5. History of the Rusovce district

Date: 20 July 2024 at 17:00
Meeting place: Rusovská fountain, Bratislava

Rusovce developed as an independent municipality. Its history dates back to antiquity to the geographical edge of the Roman Empire, lying on the medieval trade route. The expanding Ottoman Empire brought the Croatian population here. Today, the dominant feature of Rusovce is the 19th century manor house closely associated with the Lónyay family. How did the newcomers influence the development of the village? To whom did Rusovce, located across the Danube, belong until it was annexed to Bratislava? How did the Belgian princess get to the Rusovce manor?
Find out the answers during the tour.
