New Bridge (Novy Most), Bratislava

2.8
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.

  • Classic modern bridge linking old town and new town. Architecture and beauty of the structure of no taste. Only positive thing from walkway you can make nice pictures in the Castle.

  • The strange shape of the bridge across the Danube, across the old Town square came to the side of the road to see it. Some travel propaganda material called it "UFO Bridge", because the top of the disk is like a UFO spacecraft. The bridge that lights up at night is more beautiful than the day.

  • Its a bridge far away from the centre, we went there expecting something more. Its just a bridge that used to be modern 20 years ago.  more »
