went to Bratislava in 2011
The old town was great and the views from the castle hill are incredible. Really appreciated the socialist architecture on the other side of the river - reminds me of some suburbs in Sofia, Bulgaria.

American cities don't have the intimacy found in smaller historic European towns. But then again... the park just shown was built to celebrate Detroit's 300th Birthday in 2001. It is called Campus Martius (Field of War)... because 200 years ago it was a parade ground for troop formations (much like Red Square). And for 200 years after that, it was one large traffic nightmare with 6 major streets and boulevards coming together in this one spot (based on L'Enfant's Washington DC layout).

Only in the last 10 years has it been developed as a green oasis in the middle of downtown. It won many national awards, and did something that many cities would love... it generated $700 million in new development nearby, at Christmas it has ice skating and the city's Christmas Tree, in the summer it has fountains and festivals. It is one of America's next best things... after Rockefeller Plaza.

But it's no Spanish Steps or Piazza del Popolo...
