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.

The first site we went to see when we arrived to Bratislava. The view is nice from the top, not more. The exhibits are not well kept.

Many people pass under the gate without realising its architectural beauty and historic importance, also dont forget to look back as you walk through onto the pedestrianised zone,so many times the best views and best light for photographs are behind you.

We spend four beautiful days in Bratislava this August, but on the last day, just before noon, we were robbed in front of the Michalska Brana. Someone took our video camera from the stroller while I was standing next to it photographing my kids. I must say - the thief was obviously following us because the camera was not visible... More

This is one of the main entrances to the Bratislava Old Town. You will surely pass it, even if you don’t plan to :) The streets leading from here towards Danube generally get busy busy with very nice cafes and restaurants. Make sure you check out the museum on the top floor of the Michael’s Tower for a great view... More

Worth a visit to see some nice views of Bratislava. Very quite and not at all very much going on. Was very disappointed in Bratislava. Probably my least likely city I would visit again in Europe.

Part of the old town wall. It is pretty, it is old. Include this in your stroll around town. Part of what makes Bratislava worth visiting.
