@Illuci: Happy New Year to you. That is an interesting sentiment you mention. I wonder if it will ever be true.
Powerful and magnificent, such history to architecture, it touches me. Love the colours too :) oh and I'll second Illuci on the sentiment

@Lorraine: Thanks, Lorraine. As a Canadian living in Slovakia, I find the architecture a constant source of delight and interest. The old town of Bratislava has gone through extreme renovation in the 20 years since the fall of communism. The communists used to tear down such buildings and put up concrete cereal boxes. A huge proportion of the historic old town was demolished to make way for the access road to a bridge across the Danube.
beautiful frontage I like the baroc.
Going through your gallery I discover a beautiful town that did not expected.

@Laurent: Many thanks, Laurent. The old town of Bratislava is indeed very beautiful. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.
Wow, Bratislava looks beautiful! How does it compare to Prague (I was there this summer)?

@Steven: The old town of Bratislava is a much smaller version of the old part of Prague. I have only included here those parts of the old town that I found beautiful. Bratislava, like most former communist cities, has very ugly parts: boxy rundown apartment blocks, bunker-like government buildings, the remains of smokestack industries , tangles of electric cable overhead. Very gradually everything is improving.
Great architectural photo!

I visited some towns of former Czechoslovakia in 1979, among them Bratislava,too. Though under a communist regime at that time, I was impressed by the beauty of its monuments and especially churches! A great thing to read that the old monuments are being restored with such dedication!A beautiful image that pleases the eye!
