I love old city gates, and Michael's gate is very nice. It's at the top of a nice gentle hill in the Old Town, and is very well kept all things considered. Note the little bronze crown discs in the cobblestones in the area, and Google it for the story behind them!

It was a pleasure to see and hear about Michael's Gate in Bratislava. This is the last of the gates and hopefully will be kept forever to remind everyone of the historic facts about Bratislava and Slovakia. Michael's Gate is one of the 'to see' attractions here.

Really lovely to see a bit of Bratislava history. The walk up is enjoyable (not too many steps, and broken up by the Museum of Arms exhibition) but the viewing balcony outside is the perfect platform to people watch from. Getting a birds eye view on people walking that close below is quite bizarre and amusing. Lovely to look down the street, over the roofs below, up to the castle. Money well spent. Also, the ticket gives you entry to the Pharmacy Museum a few steps away which was an added bonus. Use the City Card for discounted entry.

The old city gate is a treat to see standing,but we almost missed it. Be on the lookout...lots of distractions everywhere.
The cool part was seeing the golden star in the floor within it...all distances in this country are measured from this point...I saw the same thing outside of Norte Dame in Paris! Small world...
