Bratislava Castle in Slovakia

Bratislava Castle in Bratislava, Slovakia

On a sunny spring day I took this photo of Bratislava Castle (Bratislavský hrad) on board of a hydrofoil craft cruising the Danube river. There are several companies passing the castle by boat. For the short distance between Vienna – Bratislava there is also a very modern boat, the Twin City Liner, available.

Loudspeaker in Bratislava

Loudspeaker in Bratislava, Slovakia

An interesting detail of Slovakia (and Czech Republic): There are more than usual loudspeakers in the streets. Not only in the main cities but also in the smaller ones. A kind of political information system? Which countries do you know where you can see many loudspeakers in the streets?
