Bratislava

11th October

My next trip was Bratislava, this was a short one with just one full day and one night.

To be honest, I wasn't crazy on Bratislava, and it just doesn't compare to Prague at all.
Maybe the rainy weather while I was there also contributed.

But living in the Czech Republic for one year, I thought it was a good idea to visit what used to be the same country.

We did a walking tour, and it was interesting to hear from our guide how their split was amicable, and how the Slovaks don't have any bad feelings toward the Czechs. Maybe that's due to coming a country that is divided, but it was nice to hear how they have a good relationship.
My favourite sight from the walking tour was the blue church, I have seen so many churches over the years and on my travels but this one was so unusual.

Another interesting thing, was that even though we visited on a weekend, the city was dead during the day, but came alive at night.

The nightlife was quite busy, and we went to a club that strangely had guys in animal suits dancing.

We couldn't stay out that long, as we were up early the next day. But we stopped to take some photos on the way home with these strange guys. There was a festival of light on while we visited, and part of it was a collection of inflatable, lit up rabbits in one of the main squares.

One thing I did find, was that I thought the city was a lot more beautiful at night, with it's buildings lit up against the dark sky. I don't know if its because I'm a night owl and I hate mornings, but I always think a city has two sides, day time and night time, and I always prefer the latter.
