Listen to the podcast:

Paul and Lynette Doege are an American couple who visited Bratislava for the first time last September. They started their trip in Prague, and feel that both capitals are relatively similar, with their Old Town areas and riverside. Bratislava is easier to navigate for tourists, and it is not as crowded as Prague. Paul and Lynette share their favourite sights: the Blue Church, Danubiana art gallery, and even the military bunkers.
