SOR bridge in Bratislava and the observation deck of the UFO restaurant

Less than a year, as they say, I decided to postphotos of one of the main attractions of Bratislava - Most SNP. He sat, recalled his last trip to Europe (it’s probably time to go again), and in particular a walk around Bratislava, and remembered that he hadn’t written about the bridge. And there is an observation deck at the top, and I love the viewing platform. As it is, I could forget.

Bridge

In Bratislava, I was short-lived, just a fewday, and one day in the first half of the day I wandered through the old town, passed the SNP bridge back and forth, and in the evening, returning from the sleeping area of ​​Petrzalka, decided to climb the observation deck of the bridge. Therefore, the views from below were made by me in the afternoon, and from above in the late evening.

Decrypts SNP (in Slovak Most SNP), asBridge of the Slovak National Uprising. The language is a little similar to Russian, so two whole letters from the abbreviation coincide. Previously called the New Bridge, and many on the Internet are still looking for him as the “New Bridge”, and not as the “SNP Bridge”, although this is the same thing. The bridge is not quite ordinary and is famous for the fact that it was built without a single support under it (only those that are on the shore), and is held at the expense of a single suspended support. The length is 430 meters.

Bridge spanned over the Danube. On one side are the sleeping areas, on the other Bratislava city and Old city, and also sleeping areas.

From a distance, an observation deck resembles a flyingplate hovering over the bridge. There is a restaurant UFO (UFO), it seems like even a good one for reviews. I did not go to it, but went straight to the observation room. Somehow stupid for restaurants to walk alone. So, there is an elevator going from the very bottom, by the way, it is going pretty fast, and brings you to a restaurant. Where already on the ladder you need to climb to the roof. The height of the support on which the restaurant hangs is 84 meters, which means that the viewing point is also somewhere at this height from the ground.

Surprisingly, I still remember how it wasa bit indefatigable from the fact that the lookout walked with a shake under her feet. Apparently because of the structure of the bridge. Perhaps it was not so felt in the restaurant itself, but it was noticeable on the roof. And considering the strong piercing wind (the ground is completely open), it seemed that now we would fly away on this flying saucer to neighboring Austria.
