Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

European Vacation - Part XII

Bratislava, Slovakia

We were in Bratislava for only the morning, arriving just after breakfast and departing at lunch time.

We opted to do the hike to the castle on our own.  It sits on a hill overlooking the old town.


This is St. Martin's Cathedral that we passed on our hike up hill.


We could see across the Danube to the newer parts of Bratislava.



The castle has quite a history which you can read here.











Below is the only photo from the trip of all 4 of us together.  Don't know how that happened that we never posed for one.




Very strange chandelier in the chapel.


Here's the steeple of the cathedral sighted as we hiked down to the town square.



Old walls of the city.










The town square with probably another plague statue.



Off to Vienna and other stops in Austria from here.
The subject of the next post.

Bratislava looks like such a gorgeous place to visit... I loved seeing the castle --but the Cathedral and its steeple really caught my attention. Thanks for taking us there. GORGEOUS.
