Friday I was able to leave work a little early to spend the weekend with my parents. I'm not so good with planning anything because I've learned that the more you plan, the less things go according to plan. So, since my parents had apparently brought the Finnish summer with them I had to go home after work to change instead of going to see the castle.
We did get to the castle eventually though. Bratislava is a really nice city in a way that everything is within a walking distance. So, we took the tram from my apartment to the city centre and arrived at the gates of the old town. The old town is (according to my parents) very similar to the one in Stockholm for example. Loads of restaurants, bars, tourist boutiques and gobbled streets.
Walking through the old town you either find yourself on the river bank or next to the bridge with the UFO. Walk under the bridge and you will arrive at the foot of the Hrad Castle. I like the part before the castle, the little streets with beautiful houses. The emperor Maria Theresa of Austria along with many other crown heads have inhabited the castle over its long history dating back to the 9th century.
