During medieval times, Bratislava was a fortified city and the only way to enter or exit was through the fortified gates. St. Michael's Gate is the only one left standing from the 1300's, but it was restored in the 1700's. The gate is named after the church and there is also a statue of St. Michael on top.

Through numerous occupations, much of Bratislava's ancient medieval fortifications have been destroyed; Michael's Gate is the only original structure remaining. Walking through this gate is virtually a rite of passage when visiting Bratislava. This is one of the oldest buildings in the city and is an iconic fixture in the city's skyline.

This is the old city gate of Bratislava which has been preserved for the modern day. It has a high tower above the gate which will probably be the first thing you see. It was built in the fourteenth century and was one of four city gates. Surrounding this gate are many little winding streets with restaurants lining them, they are nice to wander through. Baštová street is one of the most well-know and is thought to be one of the narrowest streets in Bratislava.

Liked the architecture itself but I wasn't so into the luxury stores all around - they always ruin the feeling for me.

Originally built in 1300, Michael's Gate is the only one of the four medieval gates of the Old Town still intact. It had a baroque revamp in 1758 and is one of the oldest buildings in Bratislava. Today the gate is host to some of the most exclusive shops such as Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior and Luis Vuitton.

Από εκεί ξεκινάς την επίσκεψη στην παλιά πόλη. Η πύλη και ο πύργος του Μιχαήλ είναι σήμα κατατεθέν της πόλης και απεικονίζονται στα περισσότερα αναμνηστικά, μαζί με το περίφημο κάστρο της πόλης. Δεν υπήρχε τουρίστας που να μη σταματήσει να βγάλει μια φωτογραφία πριν περάσει την πύλη, το ίδιο φυσικά κάναμε και εμείς!
