We found ourselves asking the question “Where is Bratislava?” when we spontaneously decided to fly to Bratislava. So we gathered some information and are happy to share what we found out through research as well as what we have experienced on our trip.
Bratislava really is a nice little town. The city reminded me of Prague. We felt very comfortable here and can recommend a short trip.
Monumental buildings are not unknown to us who live in Berlin. The remnants of socialist governments, which today seem unreal and oppressive and reminiscent of past times.
In Bratislava you should also look at the ground when walking. Otherwise, it might happen that one trips over Čumil, one of the many sculptures in Bratislava. The city centre of Bratislava is inhabited by many sculptures. Some are totally unknown and some sculptures have quickly become popular attractions in the city.
What does the name SNP Bridge Bratislava mean? It means “Most Slovenského národného povstania”, the bridge of the Slovakian national uprising. And why does a UFO fly over Bratislava?
We wanted to drink good fresh brewed beer in Bratislava. And we certainly would have if we had not found something much better.
