St. Michael’s Gate, Bratislava, Slovakia

St. Michael’s gate is the most conspicuous landmark of Bratislava. Of the four gates of medieval Bratislava, only one gate survived the ravages of time, the St. Michael’s gate. You will never miss it. At the top of the tower, at a height of 50m is St. Michael’s statue. The copper spire now green dates back to the 18th century while the lower part is from the 13th century. The Old Town square by this tower has some of the most expensive cafes in the country.

  3. Wow….I've skimmed over your most recent blog posts and find each so very interesting and filled with culture that I, as an American, do not ever see. And I'm so grateful that you shared it all with us. I especially like the bronze sculpture [3rd post down today from your top post]
