Exploring the great Bratislava



We landed in Vienna and picked up our wheels at Sixt. Blazing across Austria at 95mph while listening to Old Dirty Bastard, we approached Bratislava.  What is Bratislava?  I really had not thought about it much before.

It ended up being one of the coolest cities we have ever visited.  It is a very quirky place with bizarre statues and people dressed in odd costumes amidst an old town center that fells perfectly preserved.  Several partiers lined the streets of old town.  The town was well stocked in  bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, and drunk goons watching Dortmund-Bayern square off in the Champions League final - on fact, it was as though all of old town was one big party.


 Our room at Abba Bratislava - perfect 

 A park we ran into walking from Abba to Old town

 I have no idea what this is.  We began to get extremely hungry and had to eyeball restaurants to find a good one.

 St. Martin's Cathedral, consecrated in 1452

 Lots of bars in old town - most look pretty cool

 Bratislava's last remaining gate of the original 4 - Michael's gate

 A gargoyle

 No clue, but either interesting or delicious 

 To the rooftops 

 "Street Art"


 We finally fund a place that looked authentic and had some great food washed down with local beer and ice cold Kofola on tap

 I don't even know what we ordered, but man was it good 

 From Slovakia with love

 After dinner, we wandered more - this club at left was emitting a loud thumping bass

 A dragon

 This dog was just hanging out by himself in a store - lets call him furmonster of the day
