Bratislava

So many good things.

There is a beautiful small Odon Lechner church, with characteristic Lechner details, including tiles showing various folk motifs.









A picturesque old town (Stare Mesto) with a castle and a gothic cathedrea.  (St. Martin's; it used to be the Coronation Church for Hungarian Kings.)






A few interesting Secessionist buildings.






An amazing performance of Dvorak's Cello Concerto with a brilliant young cellist and the Slovak Philharmonic in the beautiful concert hall, the Reduta








But it was really cold and gray.  The coldest we have been since we left the US.  So we are glad to be back in Budapest where it is sunny and the temperature is approaching 60.
