Slovakia - Bratislava

I want to share with the community the photos of my trip to Slovakia

Slovensko - a set on Flickr

I visited: Bratislava

To visit the old town ( Stare Mesto ) is necessary only one day ( 2 days if you choose to visit some museum or a maximum of 3 days if you choose to visit the suburbs and parks ); Bratislava I think overall is a nice city for tourism and the prices are very cheap. Do not miss the view of the city from UFO Observation Deck !

I want to point out the major tourist attractions :
---------------------------------------------------
- SNP Novy Most UFO or New Bridge ( is a bridge over the Danube with Panoramic Observatory at 95 meters in height shaped UFO )

- Tower / Gate of St. Michael ( Michalska Brana )
