Bratislava (Pressburg - Pozsony) is the capital of Slovakia and, with a population of about 431,000, also the country's largest city. Bratislava is in southwestern Slovakia on both banks of the Danube River. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two independent countries.

 

St. Martin's Cathedral - Katedrála svätého Martina - Kathedrale des Heiligen Martin is a cathedral in Slovakia's capital, Bratislava. It is situated at the western border of the historical city center below Bratislava Castle. It is the largest and finest, as well as one of the oldest churches in Bratislava, known especially for previously being the coronation church of the Kingdom of Hungary.

 

This might be one more twilight photo of another capital city, however I'm very pleased with it. Main reason for being so is the fact that it is not a view of Bratislava you will normally see. It has two Bratislava icons - the Castle and the St. Martin Church shot from lovely bar/club terrace in the old town. I was walking around the city wondering about angles and views and I have noticed top floor terrace on one of the buildings. Although it was way after blue hour, I still went up there where I found this wonderful view. I asked if I could come the next day and take some photos. It was ok to do so... some similar places in different cities actually charge quite a lot of money of photos taken on tripod from their unique view point, luckily not this one.

 

Happy New Year 2012 Everybody !!
