Take the elevator to reach the circular deck, equipped with telescopes, explanatory graphics, and a free binocular. Just below the deck is the city's highest lounge and restaurant decorated in a 1960s style. Under the tower sits a popular beach.

  • The views of the castle and old town were great. The top part smelt a bit funny. We had cocktails in the bar which was cool.  more »

  • A nice view tower standing on the bridge built over Danube River ... very modern design and elevator to reach to the top of the tower. Best would be to visit during night to get most picturesque view of the town and the castle on top of the hill. Also you can try nice food at the top of tower in a restaurant enjoying the view.
  • Came here to get the views over the city of Bratislava. Good views on a clear sunny day. There is a lift up to near the top and then you have two flights of stairs to get to the very top observation deck. There is information about all the other high/tall towers around the world which makes for interesting reading. When you want to go inside then head to the bar and try to get views from the warm bar through the big windows.
  • Great location. Though not a very big place up there but the view from the top deck is amazing, especially at night. You just have to pay for the elevator and optionally there is a cafe and fine dining restaurant as well. We went without reservation so the dining area was reserved however we got table at the Cafe section which is practically a side of the same restaurant so you don't miss the view in a y way.
  • A must do attraction when visiting Bratislava, we went up and the views are amazing, you can see Austria on a clear day. We had a couple of drinks whilst up there which were reasonably priced. If you go you must visit the WCs which have allow you to do your business whilst looking out, great thinking time. Well worth a visit, if you are feeling brave you can even walk around the outside of the deck for a fee.
  • Great views from the top of the tower across the city and a nice restaurant again with great views. However, the waitress in the restaurant needs a happy pill. Proper attitude on the day we visited. If you are working with the public, even in a bad day, you should try and smile!
