On one of the final days of our Grand European Tour
with Viking River Cruises
last month, I felt well enough for a bus tour to the castle in Bratislava, Slovakia, with my intrepid photographer.
After we saw the castle (parts of which were old although much was rebuilt in the Soviet era) and also many newer buildings in the city, Dick and most other passengers stayed in downtown Bratislava to explore.
The 5 areas above were fascinating to see, and I'm glad I was able to go. Dick took the next 5 photos, right, and below, after the tour bus returned me to the Viking Danube
It's unfortunate I felt unwell on our holiday last month, but I picked an excellent place to be under the weather, with all meals provided for us, and coffee, tea, and snacks in the Viking Lounge
