An important landmark and reference point used by locals to point out directions or guide through routes. Cute little tower with a clock on it, brimming with old world charm.

This landmark is located in the heart of Old Bratislava. It's surrounded by cafes and shops. The structure is interesting to look at and photograph. It's just one of the many landmarks, great, but that's pretty much it. I recommend taking a few pictures and enjoy the area.

It's a lovely building that marks the start of the old town. Quite a landmark.Seems to be the dropping off point for taxis.

Ok while you walk through you have to hold your breath and make a wish, which then is supposed to become true.

This is a great place to stop for coffee or maybe lunch during your walk around the old town. The Tower and its clock look great from the cobbled streets but there is not much else. Another great photo opp.

Not a big deal if you miss this one. Just another street with cobbled street, few restaurants and pubs.

You'll find Michael's gate at the top of a long street with some good eateries whose tables line both sides. It's location makes for some fine photo opportunities where you can not only capture an image of the gate for posterity but also the buildings which frame it.
