Exploring Bratislava

Bratislava is a charming city and I spent a pleasant few hours exploring.

It was just a pity it was still rather cold.

I first heard of Bratislava in the 1960s, when Spurs went there to play a European tie against Slovan Bratislava. I suspect the city was very different then.

I seem to remember the score as goalless, but some web sites, think Spurs lost 2-0.  The match was memorable in one way, as the attacking Spurs team, decided to park the bus in front of goal.  I was at the return leg at White Hart Lane, when Spurs progressed by 6-0. There’s a video of the match  here. This must be one of the earliest matches, where I was actually present, that has a video on the Internet.

  1. We’re heading to Bratislava in a few days, any recommendations for things to do or places to eat?

  2. The old city centre is very well preserved and worth seeing, as I’m told is the castle. You can take a trip on the Danube. I think there is plenty to do. I didn’t do much, as I didn’t have much time and it was so very cold. It should be warmer now. I didn’t have any problems with my gluten-free diet, but I only ate in the hotel, which was absolutely superb.
