Bratislava … a wobbly bridge shaped like a UFO, a church obsessed with the colour blue, and a radio station housed in a huge upside-down pyramid: romantic pre-war façades and minimalist Communist architecture in the capital of Slovakia

Soviet era Bratislava, Monument to the twinning of Bratislava with Kiev 12th-18th September 1977, DNI Kyjeva, Stone Square

Close by, and almost hidden from view in the bushes is evidence of Socialist Bratislava’s close ties with the Soviet Union
(PS: the tower block in the distance is the old Hotel Kyjev)
