Europe Day 4 (PART 1): Bratislava, SLOVAKIA

Wednesday, 20 Dec 2006

Today we left Czech into Moravia where Napoleon established his headquarters during the battle of Austerlitz. Before arriving into Hungary, we had our 2 hour lunch stop in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.

Lunch at the Christmas Market, Old Town Square

The Christmas Market was packed with people.....

So many people......

Enough for picture taking, I WANT MY LUNCH!!!! Grrr.....!!

Dessert time......

A stroll through the city

After the meaty, oily and sweety lunch, a good walk is essential to at least burn some off if not all. Here are some random snaps of the beautiful capital.......

Grassalkovich Palace

The Grassalkovich Palace (or the Presidential Palace) built in 1760 is the seat of the President of Slovakia.

The cute palace guards. I like their colourful outfit, makes them look like those little toys!

Bratislava Castle

The Medieval Bratislava Castle is the most noteable building in Bratislava. The castle is now serves as an important museum.
