Wonderful shots. I love the architecture of Bratislava and cities like it and you've captured the city very atmospherically .

Great photos!

I've been to Bratislava 7 years ago... it was a very hot, boring summer day and the city was achingly empty. Would like to revisit it soon and improve my impression.

The old town really looks quite amazing. Hardly any renovation work is left there. I still don't understand though why they had to build a highway right thru the center of the city.

we call it "communist realism"... bridge with highway was build in 1975... half of the old city was destroyed (almost whole jewish quarter): some old pix:




there was synagogue right next to the cathedral...

Fantastic as always Herr Protektor! I love this town. The highway is indeed annoying, thou.


When did you get to visit Bratislava, Kampfy? Did you combine your trip with the Vienna one or is this more recent? Where else did you go to?

This is usual in every (capital) city, that it's in summer empty and everybody is on vacation or trying to chill out somewhere else. So don't wait something different in summer, but BA changed a lot in 7 years (if you are fan of new buildings :-)).

Schöne additions!


So you've been to Bratislava but nowhere else in that region? Are you kidding me?

Bratislava deserved my full attention. Which other cities are you talking about though? Budapest?
