Bratislava, Slovakia ~ charmed and amused us

DSC06181Monday April 21st, Bratislava, Slovakia

Slovakia became Europe’s youngest country when they gained their independence from the Czech Republic in 1993.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia, has a population of just under 1/2 a million people and is their largest city.  From 1536 to 1783 it served as the capital of Hungary.

We enjoyed an informative walking tour through this charming town.  The things that stood out for me were the statues, some varied architecture, natural beauty and the artistic graffiti.
