Bratislava Old Town | Slovakia

Tram passing Hurban Square (Hurbanovo námestie) in the Bratislava Old Town

Bratislava is famous for its castle and the fact that you can see it from almost everywhere in the city. This photo was taken at the Hurban Square (Hurbanovo námestie) which kind of worked as a hub for us during our stay. Going north we would reach our hotel, east of it was the pub street Obchodná, south of it lays the core of the Old Town and the way west leads to the castle.

As the weather wasn’t our best friend, the solution could only be “Blue-Hour-Photography”. This limited us quite a bit but what can you do? I was happy all the more that I didn’t have to wait long for the tram to pass as I wanted to capture one in this scene by all means.
