#7 of 1,076 in Things to do in Slovakia
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.

  • Definitely a place you should go, while visiting Bratislava! You can see south, west, east and north City views! Just Beautiful.. and so romantic!!  more »
  • One of the major landmarks of Bratislava. An amazing building constructed by the communist authorities and is officially know as the Most SNP or bridge of the Slovak National Uprising. The pedestrian ...  more »
  • Review platform and rather expensive restaurant in one bottle. The platform can be separately visit-elevator will request to the restaurant, and then climb the ladder a bit will have excellent types-overview of 360 degrees, it is better to can not find anywhere else in the city. Is on a new bridge.

  • In just some words: great to see, terrible to drink. You can see the whole city from the top of the building, with little drawings, so you can check every famous buildings location. They also have a cute heart shaped love-lock-holder if someone wants to clip their love up there. So that is really good. Which is not good (after the prices, because the restaurant is expensive) is the service. First we wanted to take a seat, a guy asked us that are we going to eat? If no, you can't sit to the normal tables. You have to use a 30cm height table and chairs. In this totally uncomfortable position they served us the coffee (no lactose-free milk) and the tea, they were not bad. After a while we wanted to pay but really no waiter or waitress gave us attention, so I went inside (you can't come here if you are not eating - okay man I'd just like to pay) then a waitress came to our table and LITERALLY DROPPED THE RECEIPT TO THE TABLE - with 2 words: the check. I payed the exact amount, said "the money" and we left. (It was really hard to pay it penny-by-penny but we didn't want to give a single penny to them.) I will never go back to here even if the sight is amazing, you can see the town from the castle also. Which is also pretty beautiful.
  • The view is beautiful. Even the view from the toilet is stunning. But if you want to get a drink from the bar it takes ages. The waiters are not bothered to ask you if you want a drink. You will have to go to the bar and other one and wait again. It took 25 minutes to get a glass of beer despite the restaurant been almost empty. So enjoy the view and very slow service! :)
  • The tower has great views for the river and the city. The restaurant was good but the waiters were not so good. WC available up. Above the restaurant there is open door area to get fantastic photos. A bizarre thing that is you will buy a ticket then can take the lift, when you arrive up there is an employee in front of the lift to ask you about your ticket.!! Totally recommended.
  • We just finished eating and drinking there. What can I say? It was one of the best meals I've ever had accompanied by one of the best views I've ever seen at a restaurant. Our server Lanka was not only cute, but spoke perfect English and gave us fantastic service, including advice on what to see around town. We got the 7 course meal and every single item they brought was just amazing. Would recommend.
  • Brilliant views of the city and the danube. Very small queue to get in. The lift is quite small and they pile as many people in as possible each time. The cocktails and bar snacks in the restaurant are delicious.
