Museum of Arms - Michael's Tower MMB

Museum & Gallery

The exhibition introduces visitors to the history of the town fortifications; various types of bladed weapons, military as well as tournament arms are displayed here and a separate section is devoted to the development of firearms.

It also documents crafts used in relation to the town’s defences and familiarises the visitor with the history of Bratislava metalworkers and gunsmiths. The top floor leads to the gallery of the tower with a view over the historical centre of Bratislava and its surroundings.

Construction of the town fortifications began in the 13th century; by the end of the 14th century, the town fortification system had three gates: Michalská, Laurinská and Vydrická. In the 15thcentury, the Rybárska Gate was added. Gradually, suburban areas grew up in front of the fortification walls which, in the 15th century, were fortified with a system of high embankments and dykes by order of the emperor Sigmund, as a result of the Husite invasion. The town‘s outer line of defences was breached by Kozia Gate, the gate at Suché mýto, and Schöndorfská, Špitálska and Dunajská gates.

Pod Kamenným Stromom

Pod Kamenným Stromom

Started by a former advertisement industry pro, this underground bar and eatery successfully proves you don‘t need to be trained in hospitality to cook truly brilliant food. Pod Kamenným Stromom has plenty to offer to hedonistic fans of the best of local organic ingredients and top-notch wines in its summer restaurant (the kitchen is closed November – March). The deceptively low-brow interior does not let on the intricacies of the kitchen, where the chef masterfully utilizes quirky ingredients in creating exciting, highly satisfying dishes: lesser known vegetables with high quality meats and fish often soaked in nice wine, artfully prepared soups, plus generous portions of rustic desserts; all finger-licking good. The most extraordinary amenity of this restaurant is its unexpectedly romantic outdoor terrace hidden from the street, making this place a great destination for couples on a first date. If you‘re trying to finally impress the so far unimpressed girl/boy, Kamenný strom is your good friend. And the best thing? It won‘t hurt your wallet!
