The capitol of Slovakia, Brataslava, is also widely known by its German moniker, "Pressburg." Seat of St. Marten's Cathedral, it's where all the Hungarian kings were crowned during the rule of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Besides the church, our tour also visited the Municipal Hall (used for concerts,) the Opera House, and the medieval and Baroque Town Hall. After a lunch in the Old Town, we took a cab up to the castle. It was partially restored after the fire of 1811. Thanks to the GPS feature on Jim's smartphone we then walked back to our ship on the Danube riverbank. The city is a well-preserved town of central Europe with fine architecture from many eras. - Dan
