New Bridge (Novy Most), Bratislava

(2.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit New Bridge (Novy Most) and other attractions in Bratislava using our Bratislava trip itinerary planner.

  • If you want to get out of the city centre, you can take advantage of the new bridge in Petržalka. It's a nice walk to the cafeteria and the disintegration of UFO, which is interesting because it from a height, you can see the whole of New York. If you have the time, take the sad Janka Kráľa in Petržalka. It is one of the oldest parks in Central Europe and we owe for it. For what her gratitude with pleasure.
