Bratislava castle
Bratislava Castle is the main castle of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The massive rectangular building with four corner towers stands on an isolated rocky hill of the Little Carpathians directly above the Danube river in the middle of Bratislava. Because of its size and location, it has been a dominant feature of the city for centuries. The location provides excellent views of Bratislava, Austria and, in clear weather, parts of Hungary. Many legends are connected with the history of the castle.

Sad Janka Krala
Sad Janka Krala (Janko Kral Garden) is a park in Bratislava's Petr�alka borough. It is located in the northern part of Petr�alka, bordered by the Danube in the north, the Old Bridge access road in the east, a main road in the south and the Nov� Most access road in the west. The park is one of the oldest municipal parks in Europe. The statue of Janko Kr� is situated in the park. The park was established in 1774-76 with the intention of creating a park for the public. Under the influence of Baroque classicism, the walks were set up in the shape of an eight-leg star and trees were planted along them. Each all�e was named after its corresponding species of tree (alder, maple, willow, etc.). The park attained its present-day shape in 1839, and was revamped in the 1970s.

UFO bridge
Most Slovensk�ho n�rodn�ho povstania (English: Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising), commonly referred to as Most SNP or the UFO Bridge, and named Nov� most (English: New Bridge) from 1993 to 2012, is a road bridge over the Danube. It is the 32nd-tallest, and thus shortest, member of the World Federation of Great Towers, and is the only bridge to be a member. It is the world's longest cable-stayed bridge to have one pylon and one cable-stayed plane. A special attraction is the flying saucer-shaped structure housing a restaurant, which since 2005 has been called UFO (previously, Bystrica), on the bridge's 84.6 m (278 ft) pylon. The restaurant is reached using an elevator located in the east pillar, and offers a good view over Bratislava. The west pillar houses an emergency staircase with 430 stairs. Nov� Most has four lanes for motor traffic on the upper level and lanes for bicycles and pedestrians on the lower level.
