Slovakia really isn't much of a tourist attraction for American tourists. I stopped off on the way to Budapest, to its capital, Bratislava. Immediately, I could tell why the capital wasn't a major tourist destination. The streets need to be refurbished, and the buildings too ... oh yeah, not to mention the swastikas I saw on this building. It's really a shame too, because you can see that beneath all of the damage, there is a beautiful city that still kind of exists here. If you point the camera in the right direction, it looks like a great place, but if you point it in another direction, you may want to stay on the train. It has all of the makings of a great place though ... a castle, fun statues, and a beautiful square.

Like on one hand you have this street, and this building which could be beautiful, and on the other hand, you have this pretty neat square.
