Bratislava, River Town.

Bratislava is a river town.  In season we watched the cruise boats going between the Black Sea and the North Sea along the Danube and Rhine.  Sometimes they stopped in Bratislava, sometimes they sailed by heading to Vienna or Budapest, their loss.  We also watched freight boats and noted flags from the Ukraine to the Netherlands and all the countries in between.  During the NATO bombing of Serbia much of the traffic stopped.  That hurt the port of Bratislava and, down river, in Budapest, the boats rafted up waiting for the river to clear.

One of the pictures is a cafe along the south bank of the river, which has been made into a nice parkland and river walk.
