UFO Observation Deck, Bratislava

3.9
Standing atop a single pylon of a futuristic bridge, UFO Observation Deck offers panoramic vistas of the Old Town against the backdrop of the Small Carpathians. The view also encompasses the brightly colored suburbs and industrial areas of Bratislava as well as Austrian and Hungarian landscapes. 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.

  • I enjoyed my visit very much because the view was so amazing. I stayed there for an hour waiting for the sunsets but it was super cold up there as it's open air.  more »
  • We drove across & around the bridge several times before we could find parking. We finally parked in a hotel lot in old Town & hoofed it over the bridge to the other side where we found the entrance. ...  more »
  • The place where you can see everything! Beautiful at night! Elevator takes you almost all the way, few steps of stairs to the observation deck. Restaurant with amazing food and even more amazing servi...  more »

  • A view is great if you go at night. You can get a discount card for 20% for going on the UFO bridge probably in the hotel you're staying at. It's around 9 euro to get 2 visits, one by night and one in the daylight...around 7e if you want one visit. Coffee in the bar is around 3e, other beverages are more expensive. Observation deck is above coffee shop and it's in the open air and you can see clearly
  • A disappointing experience. The views of the city may be OK for those who want to see Bratislava from the top but that's it. They claim to be the lowest of the greatest watchtowers of the world. But there's nothing great about the place but the prices. It's really overpriced. The entrance fee, the bars, the restaurant, the souvenirs, simply everything. Just for comparison... A tiny statue of the tower costs 18 € there. At the "top of the world" , at the Burj Khalifa observation deck in Dubai, you can manage to get a similar but bigger and much nicer statue of the highest tower of the world for as little as 5 €.
  • Amazing views and really great cocktails. Definitely worth going up. I'd suggestion going her during the sunset as it was stunning.
  • this view is amazing. its worth having a drink on the deck and checking out the view. you can also eat here but i didnt do that cause compared to the area the choice and price wasn't conducive. but very good for photography. not very crowded and also a good place to fly drone for skyline city view. yes its windy and a bit nippy. but if u have made it to this city i feel its a must see.
  • A really enjoyable experience whence visiting the elegant city of Bratislava. Probably the best thing I did whilst there. Id say that city is looking beautiful at this time of year from the observation deck. Greetings from Ireland. I hope I'll return some day.
