UFO Tower - A view from our expert author
Enjoy a coffee or cocktail and check out the spectacular view from the platform above.
The UFO hovers 80m above the Most SNP and offers an unparalleled view of the city. The bridge and UFO were built in 1967–72 and declared ‘Building of the Century’ in Slovakia. The asymmetrical structure has a main span length of 303m, and the unique attraction is the flying saucer-shaped object housing a restaurant, bar and lookout platform above. The UFO restaurant perches on top of the bridge’s 84.6m sloping pylon, and the viewing platform above this offers stunning views over the Danube, the Old Town and the Petržalka district.
