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.

  • Cosy little street, while in Bratislava all that))) the majestic Saint Michael's Gate is decorated with a small statue of Saint Michael fighting the Dragon. The tower is an observation deck, where you can see not only the old city in great detail, but even to the Bratislava castle. Climb the Tower charge, on the ticket, you can visit the Museum of ancient weapons, which is located in the premises of the tower and on the same ticket, you can get into the Pharmacy Museum in Bratislava "under the Red cancer. Tickets are not sold here separately. This building pharmacies more than two hundred years, and its interior is similar to the old drugstores in the city. Of course shops and restaurants that you can visit if you wish, and kilometre zero, but we should be talking about it separately))

  • An interesting part of Bratislava. Many shops and cafeterias/ snack bars in this area. It is certainly worth visiting for a couple of hours. 
  • We don't even know if you could enter but as there were bigliettrie and things like that maybe only the old city gates survived the bombing. under the bastion, the presence of the circle of cities.
