I visited Bratislava, Slovakia for the first time when I was 12. I went with my grandma and her friends. What I remember most from that trip is going up the UFO bridge & tower and eating a cake in the revolving restaurant at the top. We also visited Bratislava castle and just wandered around the historical city center. I loved my grandma very much and I used to go everywhere with her. Sadly, she passed away when I was only 16 so she didn’t get to see me graduate or get married.
The second time I visited Bratislava was in September 2012. I spent an afternoon in Bratislava on a trip from Budapest to Prague. Everything looked different (better) than on my previous visit. The castle got a fresh coat of paint as well as did all the other buildings in the center. The city was full of tourists and it seemed that Bratislava was enjoying its well-deserved glory. Maybe one day I go back and explore the city properly.
Have you been to Bratislava? Did you know that Bratislava is only 60 km away from Vienna, Austria?
