The new bridge (formerly known as the bridge of the Slovak National Uprising) is one of the most (in)famous monuments of Bratislava. It?s hard to say, if I like it or hate it ? but that doesn?t change the fact that it?s there. The construction of this bridge commenced in 1967 and was finished in 1972. A part of the old jewish quarter next to the castle had to be destroyed during the construction. And if that?s not enough to hate it, try to ?enjoy? the view on the castle from the south. It is always spoiled by the bridge. Today, we see it as an architectural crime of the 1970s ? maybe in some decades we?ll learn to appreciate it.
The bridge is the second bridge in central Bratislava leading over the Danube and is an important part of Bratislava?s road system. It has four car lanes on the top and two pedestrian/bike lanes well separated below them.

Address: Across the Danube. City centre
Directions: Over the Danube, close to the castle
