One one side you have the modern area of Bratislava and the other side of the gate is the cobblestones and lovely old chichester and buildings that open onto plazas... More

This is a charming, classic Eastern European City Gate! It's iconic and easily seen from all over town. You can always find your way there! I love it!

Bratislava is a nice city. Not as big as Wiena, but still nice to visit. Michael's Gate is part of old city. But it is expensive place to have a lunch or drink a coffee. Lot's of tourists are walking.

An absolutely lovely town. I had wanted to visit for some time and was sorry we didn't have longer to stay and explore. The people are friendly, the weather is good and the hotel was lovely, (clean and luxurious; pool and gym included in price) We will go again sometime soon as its so easy to reach from Scotland.

Its a cute location in the old city center. But when you are talking while walking or do window shopping you probably pass it without knowing as there are more small gates, passages and tunnels you cross in this part of the city. Therefore its recommended to conciously look for it and observe it. It isnt huge so you wont... More

The gate is a nice gate to look at. The architecture is obviously medieval. It is located near hlavne namestie area. Along the street in front of the gate there are a lot of places to eat or to shop for souvenirs.

And good for that, too, as St. Michael's Gate is an excellent example of medieval military architecture. The approach across the moat has not been altered, either, and some of the old city wall is extant.

You will reach here by just walking in old town. Loved the narrow streets here. You can also go on the top with an entrance fee to enjoy a top view of the old town. Visit to one of the cute restaurants here is a must or just grab a drink there.
