This is a must if you are in Bratislava. We went up after we had explored the old town and local area and it was great to see them from such a vantage point. There is a horizon view on the wall, just in case you are not familiar with the buildings. Great views.

For those of you seeking the best view of Bratislava, covering both the old town and the communist era blocks, this is a much better view than that from the castle. It costs €7.40 for an adult and so is not the cheapest of views, but I think it was worth it. There is also a bar upstairs, although as... More

Billed as the "smallest of the world's great towers", it does offer very nice view of Bratislava. The observation deck itself is open air and not very large and the number of people allowed is limited, so if you go during busy times be prepared for a wait. We went at around 6 PM and waited about 15 minutes. There... More

Worthy to see if you have a chance to get a student discount/some discount coupon. Otherwise choose Veza on the hill Koliba. Restaurant too pricy and not worthy to try the food.

A short walk across the bridge from the Old Town, the UFO observation deck is well worth a visit. Offers 360 degree views, it also has a restaurant/bar at the top. Great for photograph's of the castle, river and Bratislava. They have pictures explaining what you can see from certain points

It claims to be. It's nothing compared to the Eiffel. Or the former twin towers. But nevertheless, it gives a good view of all of Bratislava. The information makes it fun. Most interesting was the sign that said Austria- 6km 😅

The UFO tower is almost directly opposite the Castle and on the opposite bank-the city lights and in particular the Castle backdrop are picture postcard quality. There is a bar/resturant on the level below the viewing platform which is a great place to have a quiet drink and savour the vista. On a quiet Monday evening around 9pm, the bar... More

The viewing platform is good as you get a 360 view of the city, however there are no seats. If you want to sit down for a moment whilst enjoying a section of the vista please ensure you need the loo. The toilets have one wall of glass which is most pleasant when you are at your most relaxed. This... More

Walked across the bridge and paid to get to the UFO viewing platform. The views were good but not much better than we had from other vantage points. Probably not worth the money

Nice walk over the river maybe just one km from old town Worth a visit and a drink in the restaurant where you can have a soft drink for 2.5€ Just beyond is the shopping centre which you can view from the tower again maybe just 500 meters away
