Bratislava Skyline | Slovakia

Skyline of Bratislava along the Danube with the New Bridge and the UFO

The Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising (Most SNP or Nový most) is the most popular part of Bratislava’s Skyline apart from the castle. This new bridge over the Danube connects the Old Town with the district Petržalka which is located right at the Austrian border.

Special about the bridge is the so called UFO which sits high up on the bridge pillars on the southern end. For one you have a high class and highly priced restaurant in 80m height and additional you have a viewing point on top of that restaurant. You won’t see this kind of bridge construction very often and there is really something special about it – not for nothing it is the only bridge to be a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.
