St. Michael’s Gate

Location Bratislava, Michalska Street, historic district

The gateway into Old Town Bratislava

St. Michael’s Gate (51 m) and St. Michael’s Tower date back to the 14th century marked by the city fortifications. In the past a drawbridge and a portcullis fortified the city‘s entrance. St. Michael’s Gate was named after St. Michael’s Church and was rebuilt in the 18th century. As a result, it has a distinct Baroque appearance. In the tower you will find the statue of St. Michael and the museum of arms. The upper balcony offers an interesting view of the city.

A null kilometre marks the spot under the gate and represents a marking point for measuring distances between Bratislava and other cities.
