Standing atop a single pylon of a futuristic bridge, UFO Observation Deck offers panoramic vistas of the Old Town against the backdrop of the Small Carpathians. The view also encompasses the brightly colored suburbs and industrial areas of Bratislava as well as Austrian and Hungarian landscapes. Take the elevator to reach the circular deck, equipped with telescopes, explanatory graphics, and a free binocular. Just below the deck is the city's highest lounge and restaurant decorated in a 1960s style. Under the tower sits a popular beach.

  • In October 2019 I visited my family in Bratislava after many years. We could not omit the beautiful 95 m view above the bridge in the center. After paying the ticket, we drove the elevator up. At the widest point at a height of 85 m is a bar and restaurant and even a few stairs above..... Outdoor..... Prospect. We were very pleasantly surprised that in the restaurant there are not only places to book lunch or dinner, as in the menu, but there are also a few lower tables, where you can give only eg. Coffee and enjoy the beautiful view a little longer.

  • A weird ktisma on the central Bridge of the city. There is a restaurant with coffee. I think it's worth a visit.

  • Definitely one of the most amazing places in Bratislava. We went to one day trip to Bratislava and I'm more then happy to say that spending time here was more then amazing experience. We enjoyed in espresso and waffles while being surrounded with beautiful view. Top of the tower offers great view to Bratislava Castle and Old downtown but also to the city park on the other side of Danube. I highly recommend it :)
  • Nice view of the surrounding city and decent price. The top view area is also very very small and because of that people don't stay very long, which leads to the only negative, is that the line to do back down is incredibly long. This is due there only being one elevator....brings 8 up, takes 8 down....seriously, couldn't add one more elevator.. What if it breaks now!?? Oh well I guess they'll cross that bridge when they time comes lol
