Description of walking tour:

Walk to Michael’s Gate-there was originally four gates to the medieval city. Only one has survived to the present day-St. Michael’s Gate. The original Gothic gate has been reconstructed a number of times. The tower houses the medieval weapons and city fortifications collection of the Municipal Museum; continue to Main Square, Old Bratislava Town Hall-in the 14th century, a house with a tower, which was built for the magistrate Jacob, stood on this site. The old Town Hall took shape in the 15th century with the joining together of a number of burgher houses and has undergone a number of reconstructions over the centuries. The old Town Hall houses the oldest museum in Slovakia-the Municipal Museum, which was established in 1868. The entrance to the exposition on history of city and feudal justice is in the corner of the courtyard. Primatial Palace with possibility of entrance-the archbishop’s winter palace dates to the end of the 18th century and is the most beautiful classical palace in the city. The palace’s Hall of Mirrors has seen many significant events-the Treaty of Pressburg between France and Austria was signed here in 1805 after the Battle of Austerlitz. The palace houses a unique series of six English tapestries from the 17th century, which depict the tragic love of Hero and Leaner. Continue the city tour passing by the Opera House, Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra- REDUTA and finish by visiting Cathedral of St. Martin-a 15th Gothic church in which 11 Hungarian kings and 8 consorts were crowned between 1563-1830. There is a replica of the Hungarian crown, which weighs an unbelievable 300kg, on the top of the 85 m tower. There are crypts beneath the cathedral where church dignitaries and city functionaries are buried.
