“Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We went up to the top when it was daylight but by the time we were going down it was dark, we watched the city turn from day to night - beautiful! From up high, never going to forget! The fee is very resonable approx. €10 per person and worth it! There are bathrooms and food for purchase at the restaurant (7/8 of the way to the top) Buggies can be left just before entering the viewing platform, the lift is small but big enough for 2 adults, 3 children and a baby in their buggy. Please visit, you will be blown away, and will never forget this amazing experience!

“Worth it for the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

The lift up one of the supports of the impressive bridge tower costs 6.50 euros and you then walk up to the observation tower which gives great, if windy, views of the city, telescope is free. There is a restaurant and bar which is a little expensive but worth it for the views and if you are a gentleman, the toilet experience is equally memorable ! You have to try to see what I mean.

“It's a UFO, for sure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

A great place to view town, but there are better restaurants. If you're not pressed for time, a better spot for a view is "the tv tower" a little bit away (the very tall slim sort-of figure 8 looking structure away from the river, near the hills). Both have viewing towers; both have restaurants. Expensive and not worth the price. Grab a drink for the view, but eat at one of the fabulous affordable Bratislava spots that you just pass in front of, but might not be on your guide book!

“UFO Observation Deck can be seen from basically everywhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is a odd building that seems visible from many places around the city. We found views of the UFO Observation Deck from the Bratislava Castle grounds to best for taking pictures. It is easiest to capture the full building along with the foreground and background from there.

In the end, not sure we cared so much for the building. It is of an interesting architectural design but seems a bit out of place alongside a medieval city like Bratislava.

Other reviewers seems happy with the restaurant and bar found here as well as views of the city. Views of the city were great from the castle as well if you'll too little time to visit both.
