“Michael's Gate is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Stand here and imagine yourself hundreds of years ago.. imagine the the people coming and going with their baskets of goods and the klip-klop of horses.

“Striking entrance to the Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The gate stands at the entrance of the old town and is an interesting tower with an arms museum inside the tower. This is one of the oldest city gates preserved in Europe. Under the tower there's a compass that shows directions to some of the cities in Europe.
Its a white tower with a green top and looks quite striking. Its one of the most important old monuments in Bratislava.

Nice to look at and the clocks were interesting but didn't see any way to get in to the tower and see it in context

“Small miltary arms museum inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

This towers over the old city.Inside is a military museum.It contains arms from the middle ages.It is contained on 5 floors so you need a bit of puff to get up to the top.You can go out on to the balcony when you get to the top if you are so inclined.Entrance to the museum is included if you buy a ticket for this and the museum of pharmacy.

“Romantic Michael's Gate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

A lovely spot, with a bridge over a former moat, connecting two segments of Bratislava's beautiful old town.
