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.

  • This bridge across the Danube know without exception, all tourists because here is an observation deck, more reminiscent of a hung over the city flying saucer. Photos will be particularly spectacular, if you come here at night.

  • This is a bridge undoubtedly more comfortable and practical connecting the old city from other parts of Bratislava more recent expansion, including a shopping district. But it's hardly a moment, indeed it's pretty ugly to look at.

  • The bridge connects the town with Communist-era expansion areas such as Petrzalka, properly is not a bridge aesthetically pleasing if not for the UFO. Spending is still fascinating to see the enormity of the Danube, also at sunset, on the side facing Devin can be observed of sunsets, with glints of twilight on the river.
