Day Trip to Bratislava, Slovakia

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Bratislava, Slovakia is an hour’s train ride from Vienna. Bratislava’s forecast was for sunshine which I haven’t seen much of since France. Sounds like a good reason to go to Slovakia. 🙂 It didn’t have much to do in the way of touristy things. Basically I walked from the train station into their Old Town. That walk showed me a tired, run down, old city,full of beautiful old buildings, that all need some work. The Old Town has been renovated some and the main square was cute. But best of all were the random statues that would just randomly sneak up on me in my walking. I like that sense of humor .
After returning to the rain, I mean to Vienna, I opted to use the last couple hours of day light and walk around their Museum Quarter to see what was there. Vienna actually has museums all over the city but the majority have been placed in this Quarter. My photo doesn’t do justice to the size of the museum posted- it is huge and there are 2 of them – twin buildings – sitting in a square facing each other with a huge monument in the middle. Quite impressive. But no time to go inside today ………. maybe tomorrow – but I still have to decide what, tomorrow, my last day in Vienna will hold.
