One of the first things we saw when we docked at Bratislava was a UFO.
Actually it’s a restaurant on a bridge that looks like a flying saucer.
Slovakia, where Bratislava is located, became its own country in 1993 and has
been on its way to establishing itself as a world leader in economics and
politics. To that end it has participated in the European Union, NATO, the
Eurozone, the United Nations, the World Trade
Organization (WTO), and the European
Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Although this is a very forward
looking country, it has not lost its links to its past. The area we visited was
just as charming as the other small towns we saw along the Danube.
