With a length of about 470 yards, the Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising (Most SNP) surmounts the river Danube, connecting Petržalka to the Old Town of Bratislava. Since its opening in 1972, the bridge has become one of the most significant landmarks of the Slovak capital.
Most SNP boasts a unique architecture. The asymmetric, double-decked cable stayed bridge was built according to plans by Arpád Tesár, and is still the largest bridge across the Danube. Furthermore, it is the only one of its kind held up merely by one single pylon.
Perfect for Gourmets and Adrenaline Junkies
At almost 280 feet, said pylar is home to several special attractions. Inside of a flying saucer shaped construction, you can find a viewing tower as well as a restaurant. With the catch phrase "watch. taste. groove", visitors are invited to enjoy the unique view over Bratislava. From up here you can see the Danube with its bridges as well as other landmarks, such as Bratislava Castle, the Slovak parliament, or St. Martin's Cathedral.
At the UFO restaurant, you get delicious culinary treats served along with the view. The dishes are influenced by international cuisine, especially the Mediterranean and the Asian. Along with its two bars, it makes sure you will leave this place neither hungry nor thirsty.
If you're looking for more excitement, you can venture out onto the Skywalk. A professional guide helps you out of the window as you walk along the window sills to enjoy a whole new perspective. Don't fancy taking the stairs or the elevator? The really brave can try the abseiling experience, and take in the view while you slide down on a rope.
