One day is the most you’ll need to have a look at this small capital city. The cobble stone streets of the old town are full of attractive vistas. It’s easy to wander round as there’s hardly any traffic allowed. It’s another place where wandering the streets rather than going into things is all we did or felt we needed to do. The streets are very lined street cafes and bars which detracts a little from the buildings but generally the atmosphere was good, only came across two stag party groups! The castle/ palace on the hill has been a bit over-restored, it’s very boxy and bright white. The view from there is good, over the Danube with the UFO looking “New Bridge” and the other bank full of repetitive soviet era housing blocks. We arrived in the evening and left the next day at lunch time and that was just the right amount of time for us.
