Nový most

Road bridge Nový most (formerly Most SNP; New Bridge), nicknamed UFO because at one end there’s a building that looks like a flying saucer speared by a twig, represents a whimsical moment in Slovak communist functionalism. You can ascend the tower by elevator and dine at the restaurant, which looks like the Starship Enterprise, or gaze at Bratislava from the viewing deck – locals say it’s the best view of the city, because it doesn’t contain Nový most.
