The sightseeing tour begins at the Danube and then the Oldtimer passes the Concert Hall, the seat of the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra. It passes also the Slovak National Theater and it reaches the Square of the Slovak National Uprising with the Old Market Hall and the Monastery of the Merciful Brothers.
It continues by the Church of the Trinitarian Order to the Grassalkovich Palace – now Presidential Palace and then the Palisade Street up to the Castle. Through the Leopold Gate, the Oldtimer enters the Honor Courtyard of the Castle. After 20 to 25 minutes break, it is riding to the eastern castle terrace with a nice view of the Old Town and also of the St. Martin´s Cathedral, the former coronation church of the rulers of Hungary, then we are leaving the Castle through the Leopold Gate and we take the Castle Street and Old Town Street down. We pass the western city walls on the way to the Old Town to the Slovak National Theater, the best starting point for the walk in the pedestrian zone of the historical city centre of Bratislava.
