“Slovakia: Little Big Country”
So we had an extra day in Vienna then found out it was a public holiday and everything was going to be closed. Finding ourselves in this predicament we needed to organize a daytrip so as not to waste an entire day.
Well, Bratislava seemed to be a no brainer because it was only 1hr away on the train and 14euros each return!
Bratislava is very small compared to other places we’d been to e.g. walking in, out, around and through the old town took less than an hour!
It was quite fun posing with the bronze statues scattered in the old town: Cumil (peeping from the manhole), Paparazzi (photographer) and Napoleon’s Soldier (leaning over a bench). We hadn’t done much planning for this daytrip so I was happy to have stumbled across these unusual statues which are a bit of an attraction in themselves.
Among the other things we visited, I have to say the Blue Church was another ‘unusual’ find. Lets just say it’s called the Blue Church for a very good reason!
