Bit of a weird attraction but a fun visit. Not the easiest to get too as one of the pedestrian walkways under the bridge was closed for repairs. You get a lift up one of the legs to the top, where you can then go up another floor to the roof for awesome panoramic views of the city. There's a restaurant up there too overlooking the road/city. So long as you don't mind the staying of the tower.
One particular attraction in Bratislava is the UFO tower, shaped like a flying saucer, which is 95 meters high, houses an observation deck and a restaurant called UFO since 2005 (its former name was Bistritsa). The tower is reached by an elevator located at the east end of the bridge, which in about 3 minutes takes us to the top. Admission is paid at a 25% discount with a Bratislava card. The tower restaurant offers both traditional Slovak and international cuisine and offers panoramic views of Bratislava. The "flying saucer" is 32 meters in diameter and has 60 windows. From the observation deck, in clear weather, as it was at the time of our visit, the whole city, as well as parts of Austria and Hungary, can be seen. According to information from the tourist guide, the visibility reaches a radius of 100 km in clear weather.
Fantastic views. Worth going up to the viewing platform, if you can brave the breeze! Much nicer in the bar & restaurant. 😉
The most ignorant service in a bar I have ever experienced in my life. We were in the company of four people. There was no one at a bar. With every our question to the waiter, we were answered with “yes” and “no” in most ignorant manner. It’s such a shame to have that service at the main landmark of the city. I strongly do not recommend visiting the bar.
Inexpensive to go up the tower. Lift most of the way with a few steps to reach the top. Great views over Bratislava but can get very windy
