High historical relevance

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.

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?

It's a tower, with a passthrough at the street level. In the passthrough on the ground is a disk with distances to other places. Be sure to view the tower from both sides. The museum inside is skippable - not a lot to see and the armor is poorly displayed. However, there is an outside balcony at the top that... More

The view up this one is soooo nice. Especially the very steep rooftops. You can see the castle, the bridge, the main square. Pretty everything from up here.

A small walk around this gate is worth it. It's one of the entrance to the Old town area. You will have people playing music here and many restaurants, cafes located here
