This is probably one of the most historical landmarks in the whole of the city. It is the last remaining of the 4 gates that led you into the old walled town, which dates back as far as the 13th centuary. After the coronation of the Hungarian kings in the middle ages, one of the stops during the procession through... More

The gate is located at the top of the street depending which was you come, and there is plenty of cafes, restaurants shops next to it. There's a compass on the floor with various distances to other cities which is pretty cool.

At the higher end of the street you can find one of the oldest landmark of Bratislava St. Michael's Gate. Bratislava was a heavily fortified medieval city with four gates. These gateways connected Bratislava with the rest if the world. Out of these four gates only this one survives. A zero kilometer stone, which counts the distance of selected cities... More

You pass through this passage way into the old town of Bratislava. Good photo opportunities closed to transportation access. A logical way to enter the old town.

Michael's Gate is the only city gate that has been preserved of the medieval fortifications and ranks among the oldest town buildings. Built about the year 1300, its present shape is the result of baroque reconstructions in 1758, when the statue of St. Michael and the Dragon was placed on its top. The tower houses the Exhibition of Weapons of... More

When Bratislava was fortified this was the main gate. It s an impressive one with an impressive door. The decorations are nice and elegant. However, look at the floor and see the decorations there too. It is not to be missed.

Michals gate is really the entrance to the historical part of downtown of Bratislava. It is great checkpoint for friends meeting. Under St. Michals gate you can meet the street artist playing piano guitar or another music instrument. If you are hungry you can find also great restaurants under gate on Michalska street. You have to visit this place when... More

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