This is a snippet of my journey by car through Europe, which took place in may 2018.
In this video we will visit two of the most popular attractions of the Slovak capital city Bratislava.
The observation deck of the UFO is a modern futuristic object placed on the top supports of the new bridge over the Danube.
Bratislava castle is a historic fortress located on the very spot where the city began.
In this video we look at both objects from the outside, admire the views from each of them, and see what other rides for tourists are offered.
