A walk along the Bratislava riverfront before going home

It was another day on the train for us as we returned to Bratislava. Unfortunately, they were working on the tracks, which added over an hour to our journey. However, we were in time to walk from our hotel to the ultra modern shopping mall, Eurovea to see the movie Gone Girl. It is always lovely for us to see movies in their original language and not dubbed.

The next morning we went for a walk along the Danube. The city is busy transforming its entire Danube riverfront area into a people-friendly park. We passed the Eurovea development which includes a riverside park, luxury condos, a modern shopping mall, and an office park. We saw the ultramodern New Bridge built by the communists, which cuts the Old Town in two. Most of the walk was along grassy parkland on the banks of the river.

Finally, we walked back through the Old Town once again admiring the colourful, old buildings. Sadly, it was now time to head to the airport for our trip home.
