This is one of the oldest part of the city and one of its landmarks. So it is an absolute must see in Bratislava. Have also a look at the kilometre 0, under your feet... And... read more

Its Historical significance aside, its a huge gate and a narrow street following up to the Old town square. Its full of shops on both sides and is paved in stone. About 10 mins walk at brisk pace from Bratislava castle. You can enter the old town from here (KM zero) and continue towards the Roland fountain.

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

That used to be one of the city gates, part of the old city wall. It is worth a quick look while strolling on the busy Michalská street.

A must see in Bratislava, stop take a photo, walk through and see the second gatehouse. Then return that when facing the gate from the old town centre side walk up the street on your left and enjoy stepping back in time.

It's an old gatehouse in the city. Take a picture anyway as it's lovely however you wouldn't stare at it for long.

I like it but I don't know why. I guess because it's Iconic for me.Trip Advisor wants a longer review. It's impossible. Does that help?

The only preserved gate into the old city, entering through the arch it is easy to see how entrance was controlled.

Underwhelming :( Just like a lot of other "attractions" in this disappointing city... There's many more beautiful capital cities to visit before this one.
