Arriving in Nitra, the Nitra Castle can be seen from a distance. The route is clearly marked by traffic signs.
Arriving from the City Park, from the hockey and football stadiums, visitors can use newly opened pathways along the northern slope of the Castle hill. The turnstile, located at the beginning of the path, is open from 6:00 AM till 10:00 PM. At the top of the hill, visitors simply push to open the barred door and appear virtually on the roof of the Castellum Cafe restaurant near the Castle gate.
Visitors arriving to the Castle from the city centre, from Svätoplukovo námestie and Andrej Bagar Theatre, can use the underpass at Župné námestie next to the Nitra Gallery. After entering the Upper town road splits into two. The Kings road leading straight is shorter but steep and ends near the sculpture of St. Cyril and Methodius. The second road leads to the right, along the Church of St. Peter and Paul to the Pribinovo námestie, where historical buildings such as The Grand seminary, Small seminary or the Kluch Palace with the statue of legendary Corgoň are located. The statue of Pribina is situated in the very centre of the square. The road continues up the stairs to the Marian Column in front of the Castle gate.
