Got to cross the tip of the country on our way to Prague, choosing this route on purpose since I wanted to see Bratislava. It was part of my long-weekend trip with Adi Goila through Central Europe.

We spent little over 2 hours, most of them in the capital, and stopping once again at a gas station for the vignette. Before that, we were stopped and checked by the slovak police out in the fields, in between Bratislava and the hungarian border.

Capital of Slovakia, Bratislava is also the largest city. Stopped late at night for about 2 hours, drove thru most of the downtown, but because it was raining and tardy, didn't get to stroll the streets or take photos. We noticed the exciting night life on the streets, even though it was Thursday.
