Gilded Castle Tops in Bratislava, Slovakia















Bratislava is a whirlwind mix of the vibrant colors and intricate smells. Wafts of soft sweet lavender floats amongst the fluorescent neon illustrations painted across cobblestone walls. Trinkets of bronze, turquoise rocks and metallic beading glow and twinkle against the small sparks of sunlight peeking out behind moving clouds. The sound of aimless chatter and laughter fills my ears as I browse through wooden stands of vintage postcards, delicate lace doilies and intricate embroidered art depicting scenes of Slovakian myths. The Bratislava Castle is a magnificent structure towering far into the wisps of clouds, grand and imposing with its ivory walls and vermillion-tiled roof. The delicate angled structures that surround the castle boast medieval knights, lances and shields, all with turrets dipped in a fine corn-yellow gold. Standing from afar, the statues seem only to add to the opulence and grandeur that is the exterior of the Bratislava Castle. Oh how wonderful it would have been to be a guest of the Bratislavan King from years ago, to arrive at this grand locale at its finest, dine in the dining rooms and peek at the moon from one of it's large clear windows. I will never forget my last glance at the view of Bratislava and all its glory spread out beneath the powder blue sky as I walked down the zig-zagging steps towards my next destination.

  2. I should go there! I want to combine it together with Vienna as both cities are only minutes apart from each other. Great photos - seems definitely worth a visit.

    1. I don't really have a decent post dedicated to Luxembourg but it's a good idea to create one sometime soon.

      I've been to Prague and it's a very beautiful city, it's really Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest that I should visit in that area.

      I wonder where you'll take us to in your next post...
