The castle is the defining landmark of
Bratislava. Constructed to overlook the entire city, it is the historic
center of the ruling families.
The Danube flows below the ramparts
of the castle, and is still a great source of commerce, transportation,
The castle is very utilitarian - basically
a tall square with turrets at each corner. While it doesn't have fancy
domes or ornate battlements, it shimmers in the evening sunset and is very
imposing as one sees its true height.
From the old town, it seems to be
protectively hovering over the streets and churches, and one can find its
reflection in the glass windows of the modern buildings below.
