St. Michael's Tower & Street, Bratislava
(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The site of one of the city's medieval gates, St. Michael's Tower & Street also serves as the historical route the kings of Hungary once walked to the main square. Pass through the gate under the Baroque clock tower--the last remaining example of the wall originally constructed around the turn of the 14th century. Keep an eye out for the marker under the tower that shows the distances from Bratislava to other capital cities. Carry on down the narrow street, following the crown symbols as you imagine the royal processions that once followed this path. Alternatively, make your way up to the tower to view its small medieval weapons museum and take in a view over the streets and rooftops of the old town. Make St. Michael's Tower & Street a part of your Bratislava vacation plans using our Bratislava trip itinerary builder.

  • Costs about 4 euro to get in and go up the tower, some limited museum pieces inside but really the only reason to pay is to view the city from the top, better value and views are from the city museum....  more »
  • ... to not be missed, in contrast to the Castle (Hrad) there are still old material (weapons, uniforms, etc.)

  • Beautiful and crowdy street (at least in December), clean and I loved the decoration (lights). Must see!
