Re: Bratislava shows off socialist architecture, Volume 12, Number 26, July 3-July 9

You don't have to be a "fan" of a regime to take note of what it did. I've never been a fan of history - it's the only subject I failed at school - but readily acknowledge that it's highly important that, even if we don't learn it, we learn from it.

In my opinion, the Old Town looked far more attractive with the Jewish quarter running up to the castle before it was destroyed to make way for the bridge. Indeed, the entire waterfront was most attractive without the bridge and the National Gallery, if we are to believe old postcards. There are also a couple of upscale hotels there, which do nothing to enhance the view.
