Our plan to tour Schloss Niederweiden today, a little known former royal hunting palace (with an exceptional "wild kitchen" and the real reason for the visit) went Kaputt. Since we were just a few kilometers from Bratislava, we kept on driving.
In some ways Bratislava feels like a weekend home, like the way the Czech Republic feels. The city has a few scruffy edges; and we know our way around to favorite stores and galleries. And the food, wherever we enjoy a meal, will be fabs.
"La Putika" was suggested as a place for a good selection of beers and whimsical French food. Not that we don't love Slovak cuisine. Alas, the restaurant was closed.
