Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is part of the old town and a beautiful piece of history and architecture. Walking through can take you back to that time.

Tower Michaels gate is the only tower of the old city walls that is left. It is at the end of St Michaels street. It used to sit over a moat surrounding the old city in the 1300's. It is a must see if the old city as its one of the oldest buildings in town.

We took a train from Vienna to Bratz for the day... it wasn't quite what I was expecting. Not a great deal to see / do

This was on our must see list. It is the only surviving gate from the city's four medieval walls. It can be found at the end of Michael's Street. Michael's Gate was built around 1300 and once stood with three others leading into town. It is one of the oldest buildings in town. The statue of St. Michael and the Dragon was placed at the top during this time. Not only a real highlight from the outside, you can also visit the tower from the inside. The highlight is definitely the terrace of the 167 foot high tower where you will have an enchanting view of the castle and the old town. To get in the tower, enter through the Museum of Arms. The street leading from the Michael's Gate, Michael's Street, is lined with shops and attractions. In addition to the Arms Museum, you'll also find the Pharmacy Museum nearby in a very old shop building. There are also bars, cafes, and restaurants lining the street.

Read a few reviews on different sites and decided to go for a day from Vienna, as its only one hours drive.
Very pleasant afternoon in an old town, which has lots of cafes, few shops, lovely buildings and a castle. Unfortunately outside the old town its just an old communist city, with high rise, uninteresting buildings etc. so an afternoon in Bratislava old city is more than enough to get a feeling

As you walk under the gate your first impression of the capital will be inspiring. Fresh and active with outgoing people, the many cafes and bars are lined along the street emanating from the entrance. The dome is scaffolded and under repair in June of 2022.

Tghe gate area was really cool. Unfortunately, it was still under construction in May 2022. The buildings were just fantastic.

I read about the gate and it is definitely a must-see! What was impressive about it was how large it was. I also found the restaurants to be top-notch, and the people watching to be fantastic. Everyone was having such a great time. Bratislava is a beautiful city with a relatively compact center. I highly recommend it.
