Maria's Bratislava List

Hviezdoslavovo námestie 185/1, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
A cultural centerpiece of Bratislava. You might have seen this building in a few movies, although the "scenes" were meant to be cities like Vienna. Regardless, it's a beautiful building with loads of history behind it that's still in use today...
Rybárska brána 217/1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Someone else posted a photo of a street performer imitating this iconic figure in Slovak folklore. Peeping Tom is as he's named. A mischievous sewer worker who sneaked peeks under the dresses of unsuspecting women.
Walking around the historic downtown area of Bratislava, I was pleased to come upon this little piece of clever utilitarian art. Any city planner can decide where to place a manhole cover on the street. But it takes someone with a little foresight...
Muránská, 841 10 Devín, Slovakia
One of the most interesting aspects of Slovakia are the number of castles found all over the country. From dark ages to the almost modern time, it's a wonderful trip for anyone interested in seeing castles. Devín was the first, and it's stood the...
Pribinova 8, 811 09 Bratislava, Slovakia
In an effort to bring Bratislava up as its own tourist destination, the Slovakian government poured money into a revitalization of the shoreline by the Danube River. A large shopping mall and pedestrian walkway filled with cafes and restaurants...
Most SNP 1, 851 01 Bratislava-Petržalka, Slovakia
There's isn't enough beer in Bratislava to help you pronounce Most Slovenského národného povstania, or Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising. Which is a good thing, then, that they recently changed the name to Novy Most, or New Bridge. At least...
Michalská 390/22, 811 03 Bratislava, Slovakia
This gate opening once stood as part of a wall surrounding the city of Bratislava (it was a much smaller city of course). Today it's just a lovely piece of historic architecture as you walk through Old Bratislava. My fiance told me that you should...
Rudnayovo námestie 1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Standing in Bratislava since 1452, the cathedral is a historic centerpiece of Bratislava and of Eastern Europe. During the Ottoman Empire days when Hungary was conquered, St. Martin's Cathedral became the coronation church for Hungarian kings.
Miletičova 580/54, 821 08 Bratislava, Slovakia
Venturing into the neighborhood of Nivy, you'll find this large outdoor market full of fresh produce, cheap goods, and a few stands selling true Slovak street food. For me, I come to this spot to get langoše (lahn-goesh). It's yeast dough...
