St. Michael's Tower & Street, Bratislava

#9 of 1,144 in Things to do in Slovakia
The site of one of the city's medieval gates, St. Michael's Tower & Street also serves as the historical route the kings of Hungary once walked to the main square. Pass through the gate under the Baroque clock tower--the last remaining example of the wall originally constructed around the turn of the 14th century. Keep an eye out for the marker under the tower that shows the distances from Bratislava to other capital cities. Carry on down the narrow street, following the crown symbols as you imagine the royal processions that once followed this path. Alternatively, make your way up to the tower to view its small medieval weapons museum and take in a view over the streets and rooftops of the old town. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Bratislava holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the St. Michael's Tower & Street and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
