Bratislava: UFO Observation Deck

Bratislava: UFO Observation Deck

Postby tomvet » 13 May 2017 22:11

The UFO Observation deck is built upon the New Bridge in Bratislava. It is located at the end of the bridge away from the Old Town so if offers commanding views the Old Town, Castle and the Danube.

MS Sofia docked on the Old Town side, however a 10minute walk across the bridge got us to the foot of the tower. Entry is 6,50€ per adult and kids > 111cm :think: :? :think: pay half price. Mai had to pay!!! :cry: :cry:

Once you get to the top, you enter the foyer for the bar / restaurant where you are ushered up stairs to the outdoor observation deck with fabulous views!!

Bratislava Old Town

Bratislava Castle

St Martin's Cathedral - why did they build it so close to the highway?

Image

New Town with Austria just 6km away!

Image

The Danube Upriver

and downriver

Then it was time to head indoors and downstairs for a cuppa but not before a pits stop!

Mai was appalled that boys made their wee wees in the same kind of buckets that Nana feeds the calves in! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Image

........ and one could enjoy the view as they sat on the throne!! :o :shock:

Image

Anyhow back to more civil matters!

The 180 degrees of the deck that faces the Old Town is a swish restaurant. The 180 degrees facing the New Town is the bar! Both are overpriced!!! Well I think 3,90€ for a glass of milk is overpriced!!!

A custom wrapped chocolate for Dad!

A mad dash across the bridge to the ship and sail away!
