Bratislava Castle, Slovakia


Today we were at Bratislava, Slovakia. It was cool one and half hour drive from Vienna. The first place we targeted to see was Bratislava Castle. A snow white rectangular structure perched on a small hill, it was visible from miles away as we were entering the city. There is no parking facility around so we had to park our car downhill and walk up along the marked path.

This castle was devastated by fire in 1811, today’s version is the rebuilt form of the castle during 1953 to 1968. We walked up getting glorious views of Danube river flowing down beside the hill. Our thrill died down soon because the castle was closed for further renovation. The museum too was closed. Lucky future tourists!
