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.

This is one of the main entrances to the Bratislava Old Town.

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.

I recommend you pay it though as you will get a great view from the Gate over the Old Town. Nice little pub at the base as well for a beer before or after.
