Farská Ulica, March 2003. One of the great joys of teaching English in Bratislava was the amazing travel opportunities during weekends and holidays. Between September 2002 and June 2003 I was lucky enough to see virtually the entire country and in many ways Trenčín felt like the archetypal Slovak town. Pretty and low-key, it has enough points of interest to keep you entertained for a daytrip. This shot was taken on the town’s cobbled main street, with the castle providing a dramatic backdrop.
