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.

  • The Saint-Michel Gate located at the end of a very busy pedestrian street lined with shops and restaurants. Under the door is kilometer zero, a circle indicating the distance with several major cities of the world. Architecturally, the door is worth the look

  • On our guided tour, we roamed and the St. Michael BB´s Tower. This makes an impressive eye-catcher in the pedestrian zone.

  • Saint Michael's Gate is the entrance of the old Amber Road and was one of the four gates of the city. Near the theatre you can admire the archaeological excavations with the fishermen's port. Tradition has it that passes under the door silently. Under the Tower there is the zero point, that is a circle with all directions and distances to major cities eurepe and not. Inside the Tower there is a Museum of weapons from the middle ages and up you get nowadays. Surely a point of interest
