Strolling around Bratislava

No photos

It’s been a while since I visited Bratislava and although what was beyond a doubt the best sandwich shop in eastern Europe now has disappeared, the city has changed a lot for the better.
Intriguingly, the powers that be seem to have decided Bratislava should be an artistic capital and everywhere in the downtown area, you can find statues in odd poses.

Since the city is so close to Vienna and Budapest, many tourists seem to skip Bratislava for either of both of these nearby capitals. However, the tourists that do show up seem to be more genuinely interested in the town itself.

What surprised me is that the city, considering it was the capital of Hungary for several hundred years during Turkish occupation, is so relatively small. At the same time, that smallness probably also is the city’s main attraction.
