New Bridge (Novy Most), Bratislava

2.8
#12 of 153 in Sightseeing in Slovakia
Bridge Tourist Spot
Spanning the Danube River in its Communist-era glory, New Bridge (Novy Most) connects the capital city's old quarter with the new town of Petrzalka. Stop to see the hulking 303 m (994 ft) long metal bridge and view its unorthodox design featuring an asymmetrical cable suspension attached to an 85 m (278 ft) tower. Note the tower's resemblance to a flying saucer, complete with a circular construction, glass windows, and a restaurant. Odds are you'll cross the bridge either entering or leaving the capital. On the way toward the old town, you can admire the view of the castle and historical buildings, and on the way out marvel at the vast sea of concrete residential buildings across the river.

  • This bridge is simply ingenious and when you consider it was first built on the side of the river then rotated 90 degrees to go across the water and it worked, Incredible. Worth taking a look!  more »
  • However you arrive you cannot fail to see this bridge across the Danube with it's 'UFO' type viewing tower. Busy motorway which serves as a main route in and out of Bratislava.  more »
  • This is safe and lovely bridge to walk over and view the river and all its activity below. It has amazing design! If you go from the city side and then via left when you get to the other end, there is...  more »
