Day 7 – The UFO Tower Experience

Today was our last full day in Bratislava and indeed for this trip (how time flies!!). As I mentioned yesterday, the sole aim of today was to explore the UFO Tower which stands proud over a dual carriageway.

N.B. I thought I would mention that a car has just drove straight down the tramway outside the hotel window…whoopsie!

After a short walk across the River Danube, we reached the base of this majestic structure which, at the point of writing, consisted of a wooden shell with a porta cabin alongside. What was more concerning was the fact that a big step was present to enter, however, we later discovered that a wooden ramp had been constructed around the side. The temporary walkway to the elevator from said porta cabin can only be described as an entrance to a rather strange rollercoaster; walls and ceiling painted entirely black with a rather concerning whirring noise emanating from the end (the elevator!).

Once inside the ‘UFO’, you are presented with stunning panoramic views of the city including the famous Castle. If you are lucky enough to experience the restaurant also, don’t expect large servings of food, it’s one of those posh places where you are required to sample the tiniest portion and then pay a bomb for it…

There seemed to be an upstairs section, however, I’m not quite sure if it’s accessible as we didn’t venture that far.

Tomorrow, we head over the border into Austria to Vienna Airport for our flight back to good old Bristol, I’m just hoping that Superbunny makes it back without bleeding out again ready for its next adventure in June to Vilnius in Lithuania and then over the border to Minsk in Belarus (after being patched up that is!).

Stay tuned to find out…
