I think I'd prefer to visit Krakow or Warsaw first.

Warsaw is amazing, what are you talking about. Yes, some areas have been trashed by the communists, but even those areas are interesting. Such a dynamic city - many people I know either can't get enough of it or....
Anyway, Bratislava is very beauftiful! Thanks for pics

Great job! I had never heard so much about this city, I just had in mind the image of that movie "Hostel" which is recreated in Bratislava, but I have to admit that I got nice-surprised to see that it's not like that. It looks as cosy as other small European cities.

I think Warsaw looks great. Perfect mix between old and new architecture with some commieblocks here and there. If only Poland had the euro.

Since Slovakia may qualify for the 2010 world cup tonight, I've decided to add another couple of shots to the thread.

Hlavné námestie, Bratislava's main square:



One of the alleys leading towards Hlavné námestie (which is actually behind me in the shot):



Part of the highway that was built right thru the old town:



Some guy sitting on a bench on Hviezdoslav Square:

The awful chimney is gone!
It was such an eye sore for the city scape.

Which chimney/smokestack are you referring to? The one you can see from the castle hill?

The castle looks so different in white. To be honest I preferred the old color.
