Todays destination was Budapest....it wasn't meant to be but when it is ranked in the "Top 25 Must See's" in our Bible (Lonely Planet Guide) it was time for another slight detour. Vienna is practically on the boarder with Slovakia and pretty much no difference in travel time to Budapest via Austria or Slovakia we took the chance to clock up another country en route.

We headed for the capital Bratislava which pretty much sits on the boarder for a lunchtime visit. We parked up in the centre of town and headed in. It seemed like a small pretty happening place....an art exhibition lined the main street, the old town was lined by bustling cafes and the odd 'working man' statue. After lunch we headed down to the riverside (The Danube) taking in the NEW Bridge and the hilltop castle. All in all an alright small capital city.
