Nice girls walking around there, as far as I remember.


Kampfi, did you find some female Bratislover as well?

Very good shots, as usual, from a nice but rather unknown city (well, I did not know how Bratislava looks like before visiting this thread )

Nice shots of Bratislava! Great and historical architecture!
Like many other cities around the world, some old buildings are continuously being substituted for new buildings. I think it's directly related to laws of use and occupation of land.

Where can I find more about Slovakia architecture history?

PS: Sorry for my poor english.

history of typical slovak historical architecture is IMO a bit boring. Slovak culture is a culture of village - there were not so many large historical cities in Slovakia. If so, they were influenced by germans and hungarians (until 1918 was Slovakia a part of Austria-Ungaria)

architecture of historical monuments, which can you see on the pics, are similar in middle-european countries. Bratislava has mainly baroque palaces, typical for Austria

the best pieces of slovak folk archtecture you can see in villages like Vlkolínec )http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlkol%C3%ADnec), Zuberec )http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zuberec) or Čičmany (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%8Ci%C4%8Dmany) and also in works of father of slovak architecture, Dušan Jurkovič (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Du%C5%A1an_Jurkovi%C4%8D)

Kampflamm,

Wonderful photographs. Bratislava is one of my favorite cities in Europe.

I noticed something unusual in one of the photographs.
Do you know anything about the gold or brass sphere on this tower? I have never seen a detail like that before.
I'm guessing that it is some kind of astronomical globe.

According to one of the travel guides I bought, it's a lunar globe that used to show the phases of the moon.
