Basically just another point of interest. Bratislava don't have many attractions. You can see everything in a few hours. Do not recommend to come on holidays to bratislava. Its a place just to pass by and spend a few hours.

if you are in town, you will surely see it. I actually did no research of bratislava and of course figured out after the fact of michael's gate. I was pleased that I had taken the time to photograph it and also take it in.
