The Week That Was – (Part Three)

This week didn’t leave much time for exploring Bratislava. My mother and I were busy at home preparing for Easter and painting the flat. I also had a special visit from Istanbul which meant that my mind was elsewhere but I still managed to snap some photographs.

Lekáreň u Salvátora, a striking example of neo-renaissance architecture in Bratislava,  was once home to a beautiful pharmacy. Built by pharmacist Rudolf Adler in 1904, the first floor contained a pharmacy which operated until it was shut down in 1996. Today the first floor is abandoned and it’s such a shame to see a  culturally protected monument in such a state of disrepair. The building’s facade features a stone statue of Christ the Saviour by sculptor Alojz Rigele.

Bratislava’s Radio Building is – voted as one of the ugliest buildings in the world –  is now a protected architectural landmark. To me it’s iconic and I couldn’t imagine Bratislava without it.
