  Michael´s Tower
by Vlasta

The tower of Michael is part of the National Museum, housing an exhibition of ancient weaponry. Visitors can also scale the tower to the balcony for a panoramic, bird´s eye view of the Old Town.

Unique Suggestions: Beneath the gate is the "0-kilometre sign" signifying that Bratislava is zeo kilometres away. The bronze circle on the ground points out directions and distances to major metropoli around the world.
You can see that the university students walking under the gate don´t speak. It is because to speak while walking under during exams - it can bring bad luck and they´ll fail. I can confirm - it helps! :o)

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
