We walked to the old town from the Railway station and walked through the Gate without even noticing. It was only when I looked at the map I realised we had passed right through, and doubled back briefly, though not a lot to see.

Beautiful old gate to walk under along the cobblestone streets. A must see. It is like a gateway to the quaint little town.

Very nice area on the edge of the old town. Many restaurants and gift shops in the area. Be careful when selecting a restaurant there. My experience, the nicer it looks then the experience is more negative.

If you walk too fast you will walk right past it as the area all around has been built up and commercialized. Make sure you visit the tiny ally house inside the gate.

Very nice walk in the old town of beautiful Bratislava. Very atmospheric with music playing and lots going on.
