The way in, and the way out. It is a visible tower so a good gathering point. The zero point and mileage signs were cool.

Inside the museum there are many different weapons and from the very top floor you can go out onto the balcony and see a 360° view of the city.

This historic street is blessed with some interesting shops, a good selection of bars and restaurants as well as some good antique shops. The street buzzed with a throng of tourists and locals and is a must see location for visitors to Bratislava

This is the main route to enter the town if you have travelled to Bratislava by train. It is a wonderful old building and you go up the tower if you wish. The entrance leads into the old town area and has a great view down the street lined by shops and cafes.

Good landmark to find your way out of the old town if you want to see other parts of the city. And a good reference point to if seeking your back from the tram filled outer streets. Good looking though in its own right.

This is a nice little part of town that is a good place to take in the gate, whilst also enjoying some of the stores and restaurants hiding in nearby alleys. Come for the gate, stay for the restaurants.

Walking through the old town this beautiful building will catch your eyes. It's really beautiful and inside is interesting weapon museum. From the very top you can see the whole old town. Tickets are very cheap - a bit over Euro 4/adult. Under the gate on the road is sign with distance of various cities in the world from Bratislava... More

You can walk to the top for viewing of the city and picture taking. You have to walk up narrow stairscase just in case inclosed areas bother you.
