The next day we had dirt-cheap lunch in a school cafeteria style establishment, some rice and schnitzel thingy, then we took to the streets. First up was a trek up to the castle, which wasn't all that amazing, and neither was the was the museum it contained, but the views were pretty good, especially as you could look out over the contrast between the sides of the river, Old town on one side, Soviet tower blocks on the other. Spent the rest of the day exploring the Old Town, seeing how many weird and wonderful statues we could spot, including Napoleon and a spy (seperately). Then we went to a mahoosive Tesco for dinner materials. Dinner included an incident of hilarity when I chucked some tomato over the balcony and angry Slovakian shouts arose, so we left it a while before we left for another cheap and slow night out for some good baeer and nice bars.
