It's a strange bridge where there is a restaurant and observatory at the top of it. As others have said, it looks like a UFO has landed on it! We went up it in a small elevator up one of the legs and then there is a disconcerting walk up some angled stairs as the legs are on an angle.... More

Pedestrians and cyclists can cross The Danube on the lower section of this bridge whilst motorised traffic goes over the top. Whilst walking across there's some interesting graffeti.

While I respect the locals resentment of the bridge, it is quite welcoming as you drive in towards the city. I found myself capturing photos throughout our stay in the city

Although it feels like it has been placed there out of nowhere, I think that it's impressive from an architectural point of view. You can see it from any point at the river, and it offers some great views. On the top of the tower there is a UFO observatory that we didn't visit unfortunately.

Quoted in many books as hated by the locals and many tourists... yes it is weird to first see and it does look out of place, and sadly too close to the beautiful old city, it could have been far batter placed further down the river and caused less controversy. But it offers spectacular views across the river, three countries... More

Walking over the bridge, you get to check out the beautiful views, I walked it at night down one the side the, back the other side with wonderful views over the castle. Nice to do just after eating, and maybe a few drinks. Also if you are into street art, there is a lot of good stuff round the bus... More

Only went over here to visit UFO Tower. Looks Old and very worn, smell like its use as a urinal. Not the best symbol of Bratislava. Although I didn't think much of Bratislava as a whole. It needs bringing into the modern age.

Poor design, ruins the beautiful skyline of Bratislava. I am sure the restaurant is nice and the views inside would be spectacular but from the outside its poor.

Just a bridge, not spectacular as a lot of other bridges in Europe. The UFO restaurant is regarded by some, if not most of the locals, as a joke with prices being of a premium. Nice views from the bridge for photos but not of the bridge itself.

This is the first thing you notice as you arrive in Bratislava. It was built in 1972 and now looks like a dated vision of the future, the sort of place a James Bond baddie would live & survey the town from. From afar it looks great, especially at night. There is an expensive restaurant inside called "UFO" meals start... More
