    The New Bridge - Deck

    bringing traffic right into the city

    Favorite thing: The problem with the New Bridge is that it delivers traffics directly to a highway that knifes directly through the center of Bratislava, dissecting the castle from the rest of the city. Cars, trucks, busses, fumes, horns, destruction. Motor vehicles are bad enough, but the former Communist leaders of Slovakia allowed for the construction of a highway right through the middle of their capital city. It is what you might expect in an American city - and very sad. Now, if I were in charge, this is what I would do: I would tear up the highway altogether, and re-reroute the traffic elsewhere. The bridge would remain open for non-polluting streetcars, but otherwise it would become entirely pedestrianized. I would allow the construction of shops on the bridge - and perhaps even a residences. It could become a great attraction for Slovakia: "Bratislava Bridge" would bring in the tourists. Profits from the real estate development could be used to improve living conditions across the city. The entire project could be capitalized by Western investors, and given the grand title "Bridge of Hope" - or some such thing. Just an idea - but something should be done about the highway, one way or another.

    The New Bridge - Tower

    elevated object

    Favorite thing: The New Bridge of Bratislava is certainly very impressive from an engineering point of view. I admire the elegant beauty of its design, the way that it solves its particular topographical requirements with admirable finesse and precision. It's easily one of the most visually striking modern bridges I've seen. I didn't get a chance to visit the tower - doesn't it look like a flying saucer in this view?

    View from the Hrad castle

    Favorite thing: Like all cities which suffered form communism, Bratislava has it's own concrete jungle of apartment blocks that thousands of people live in. This picture was taken from the Castle Hill.

    The view is superb as well

    Favorite thing: This photo shows the superbly designed toilets in the bar / restaurant at the top of the tower on the new bridge (Novy Most)

    The view out the window is across the city towards the housing blocks.

    The New Bridge - View of the Danube

    by yooperprof Written Nov 20, 2003
    across the wide Danube

    Favorite thing: Not exactly the Blue Danube - but it's not blue in Vienna, either. What it is: a great continental river, comparable to the Mississippi.

    Fondest memory: At the top of the bridge, a 'flying saucer' shaped restaurant/cafe. We went up there and got a pretty nice view of the city.
