“Quirky museum inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

An interesting museum inside the tower with a nice surprise at the top that you can go out onto the balcony to experience the views of the old town.
The museum isn't well sign posted in how to get in but the 4.30euro ticket per person also gives entry into the pharmacy museum,

“Party location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Party location during weekend evenings. Nice bars around, but on the other hand if you are wearing high heels, you would probably kill yourself because side-walk is in such a horrible condition. A lot of homeless people are sitting in front of bars and asking money from tourists.

“Take a peek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Michael's Gate is the only portion remaining of a Medieval fortification that once stood in Bratislava. It is worth seeing for a photo op, but not really much more to do. The city of Bratislava, however, has lots of history since it was founded back in the 9th c. It is a lovely city full of Gothic, Boroque, and Art Deco buildings!

“Worth a climb to the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is an interesting heritage item, and well worth the climb to the top. You get a great view across the Old Town. The weapons display on the various floors going up was quite interesting, but not a English labels.

“Bratislava sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

When in Bratislava.... A local must-see, I suppose.

Nice historical feature of the city, well preserved. Think of all the souls that have passed through over time!

Well deserves a wander through.
