Bratislava, Slovakia

20120911-054302.jpg Kongo arrives in Bratislava the capital of Slovakia for a day of walking around and sightseeing in this ancient city. Like most of this part of the world, Bratislava has seen its share of invasions and foreign armies. It is a beautiful small city on the Danube situated close to the junction of three countries in Central Europe: Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria.

Here Kongo has a friendly chat with “Uncle Joe,” a remaining relic from Bratislava’s recent past as part of the Soviet Bloc.

Imagine being in first grade and having to learn to say (and pronounce) a name like this on the first day of school. Some of the words in the Slovak language seem unspeakable!

Travel safe. Have fun.

  1. Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds
    me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
