Bratislava has an Old Town that is wonderful to wander around on a sunny day. First we succumb to the temptation of taking a tourist tram up to visit the old castle, where we enjoy the great views on yet another sunny day, while planning to stroll after the ride.
Once we've arrived at the top, we hop out to enjoy the views.
Our cheerful young guide points out that those distant smokestacks are in Hungary.
Learning that those equally distant windmills (below) are in Austria is a visual reminder of how crowded European countries can be.
And of course there's the old castle itself, worth a photo before we climb back into the tram for the ride back down.
