Gate to old town

This is the tower or gate that leads to the old town. A very impressive "door"! Don't miss the decorations on the floor.

Michael's Gate is like a beacon in the Old Town. The highest point in the City and is easily seen form far away. The shops and restaurants as you approach the gate are many and different. Well worth it as part of your walk around the Old town

A few steps up and down for a great view. It says museum and there are displays on each level. Not great but a few interesting items.

Old Town Bratislava is a small, quaint, and friendly city in Slovakia. I visited for 2 days while on a choir tour that involved Vienna and Prague as well. Bratislava was my favorite stop. This certain attraction, Michael's Gate, was one of the highlights of my trip. A small group of friends and myself were touring the city and decided... More

This isn't a site that will take a lot of time to see, but you can walk through the gate and feel like you're experiencing part of the city's history. The surrounding neighborhood also has a lot to see, and since you really can see Bratislava in one day there's no reason not to include Michalska brana.

Michael's Gate is a very old structure remnant of the medieval times. You more than likely won't miss it if you are exploring the city. The structure now serves as a museum of mid-aged weaponry. I didn't go up though as I didn't have much time. Not sure of the fee either, but I won't expect it to be very... More

You will probably walk through this gate if you explore Old Town. It's a good photo op. On the street right under the middle of the gate is a sort of compass that points to major cities around the world with distances from the gate noted. There is also the narrowest house in Solvakia (originally a passageway) that our guide... More

One of the old city gates, impressive, you can make good photos. Just walk through and you are in a different world - not any more the old town.

If you spend any time in Bratslavia, you will see this historic gate. Our walking tour visited it briefly. It is worth few minutes visit and a few photographs.
