The Old
The Art

Brataslava has 4 statues you need to find. If I told you where they are it takes the fun out of finding them. The old town is small and you will come accross them, although 2 of them blend in with the scenery: my friend Napolean here and the workman comming out of the sewer. The photographer is very easy to see. So is the last one.

Then again, maybe not.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The old town is compact and there is a lot to see
  • Cons:They have discovered graffiti
  • In a nutshell:A real gem overlooked by hoardes of tourists

    Back for another look -- regarding the airline. What a shame so many of those types of airlines have a difficult time staying in business. It's getting tougher and tougher to get an affordable airfare to Europe -- tried to get a decent airfare to Amsterdam last week but it was ridiculous! Pretty soon we'll be captives in our own country. Europeans are lucky to have low-cost carriers.

    Good information on a quick getaway to Bratislava! I really like the idea of staying at the Boat Hotel -- looks pretty nice to me!

    Great start about this slovakian gem. As far as I know there are at least 4 statues in the city centre ... :o)
