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.

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.

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
