This castle has a long history, a traditional story says there were a “combat swimmer” action in 1052. Later it became the place where they kept the Holy Crown of Hungary and the city of Bratislava (Pozsony, Pressburg) was the capital of Hungary too.

Nice one…are you on a bridge or something?

NomadicMatt

Yeah, I was on the bridge across from the castle.

Looks like new. Good restoration?

NomadicMatt

Yeah, they just finishing repairing it from the WW2 last year!

Hey, better late than never right?

NomadicMatt
