Anyone who has paid close attention to the city's coat-of-arms will recognise this as the porticulus gate which was once part of Bratislava's city walls. It is a bit of local colour which shows where the porticulus gate could once be found, reminding people of...More

The street which leeds to the former gate is full of restaurants, shops - nice. But there is no more gate, it was demolished already in the 15th century.

A very interesting symbol of the old gates, with the city's emblem on it. It's on one of the main streets in central Bratislava!

The place of the 14th Century Town Gate is marked by a modern looking Portcullis suspended above head height. You'll find it in Laurinska Street, Bratislava. The original Gate was pulled down in1778 so the town could expand. Worth a look when in Old Town.
