heading (paragraph): Sights
No. of pictures: 14 pictures
A colossal building we can see today had many forms in the past - originaly it was a Celtic oppidum, then a fortified settlement, followed by towers and palaces, and finally a representative residence of the royal court. However, it has been a strategic position of this national cultural heritage (since 1961), an essential part of Bratislava rising above Dunaj, that remained invariable through ages. No wonder that the the castle is a symbol used on a back side of Slovak eurocoins.
It has been already several decades since the gradual reconstruction of the castle begun. Its purpose is to keep this proud national heritage for future generations and to make it accessible for tourists.

One Saturday in March, we set out to exploring our capital, Bratislava. We had learned that it has a new landmark. It is devoted not only to tourists from abroad, but mostly to locals. The attraction is the so-called Street of Light.
One of the most densely populated areas in Slovakia and even in the Central Europe has several unusual natural nooks. One of them is forest Stary Haj, that was declared protected landscape area. To this very forest we go today.
In the last article of our bike trip we move from the largest baroque castle compound in Austria, Schloss Hof, across new Bikebridge of Liberty, to the city districts of Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava.
Petrzalka is the largest and densest district in Bratislava, also it is the largest housing development in central Europe. Many called it a “concrete jungle” in the past, however, today there is not only vast greenery but also several interesting natural sights located just among houses or nearby.
During the Night in the Museum event our staff visited Slovakian Museum of Technology – the Traffic Museum in Bratislava. It is located in the compounds of the rails of the first steam train station in Bratislava built in the 19th century.
The unique SNP bridge and its noticeable structure on top resembling a flying saucer is one of the most popular and most photographed landmarks in Bratislava. Today it naturally belongs to the city, however, this wasn’t always true.
Bike – a simple machine on two wheels; we decided to use it during our summer vacation to explore beauties of nature, history of various places and last but not least to get fitter. Come with us to this unusual bike trip, which starts at the largest housing development, Petrzalka, and ends in Wolfsthal, a picturesque Austrian village.
People spend their free time usually on hills skiing, drinking hot beverages at Christmas fairs or just sitting at home watching TV. This time we would like to invite you to the museum. Not long ago there has been opened an exposition. We think, you can look forward to seeing it. We can guarantee that.
