Last day in Bratislava

Photos contributed by Dibby Smith, August 27, 2017

"Final day!! The day was mostly unscheduled so people did lots of different things. Scott went for a longer walk around the city, then we met some others and went up to the UFO building above the bridge. There is a viewing platform at the top with gorgeous views. First you walk on a pedestrian walkway under the bridge to cross the river, then ride an elevator that goes up on a diagonal! Some came back a longer route but I went back to the hotel. Early dinner and then a FABULOUS concert in the main square of Bratislava. Great crowd, some came and went but many stayed for the entire concert. The group was miked so you could hear them from all over the square. We were so proud!! Then an afterglow back at the hotel, finishing off everyone's wine and snacks. Sad to leave this beautiful city!"

Amazing to watch the cruise boat maneuver at the dock!

Views from on high!







We made it to the top!



We found Drew Smith in a bar at the top!

We watched a chess game for a few minutes

They were setting up chairs

Lots of people listening


These guys were rapt



What a beautiful venue for a concert!
