This is the one properly preserved remnant of the gates to old Bratislava. The tower above is visible for a distance around and is quite distinctive. The gate itself is interesting for its historical value. The area gets quite crowded with tourists.

Very interesting landmark with which the nice paved street ends. It gives a historical view at the old town of Bratislava.

Fabulous entrance into the old city. Beautiful architecture, well worth the time to stop and take a closer look. It's one of the kind of things you visit Slovakia to see

Apparently this is the only preserved gate of the city fortification system. It dates back to the 14th Century. All around you can find plenty of small shops and nice restaurants. Well decorated at Christmas time.

Last gate of Bratislava city. Very picturesque leading through to nice shops in a pedestrianised area of the city

Michael's gate is one of those attractions that appeals to the architecture buff like myself. I enjoyed the architecture so much, I purchased a set of pen and ink drawings of it from a local artist. Once done gazing at the gate you can take in the nearby shops, restaurants, and pubs.

Go have a look its not going to take long and you can go up the tower worth a look and if you go down the side street by the skaritz hotel there is a great bar hidden away

Definitely see this when visiting Bratislava, it takes you to the old city which is far cooler than the new city
