Arty Windows in Bratislava

-Look Up, Look Down Challenge, Week 88

Every Thursday, I publish a post containing photos taken from above or below, and invite you to join in the challenge by posting your own images with an up or down perspective.


I made a flying visit to Bratislava this weekend, en route to Salzburg.  Unfortunately, I came down with a heavy cold which ground me down to a very slow meander around the city as opposed to my usual energetic walk.  After a long rest at a pleasant bar just below St Martin’s Cathedral, I trudged up the steps to take a better look at the Cathedral and its courtyard.  To my delight, when I looked up at the old outhouse to the left I found these cheerful, arty murals at the windows. There are more on the other side facing the main road.

What a great way to brighten up an old wall and boarded windows!

  1. What a brilliant way to bring new life to an old house. Your photos really showcase the windows well.


  2. Debs, I just love these! 🙂 And it’s happened again! I just posted a windows which could have been a ‘look up, look down’ with a little modification. 😦 I’ll get there one of these days! Maybe an amalgam of Krakow shots, who knows… Absolutely love the jollying up of this sad old place, and you for spotting it 🙂


  3. Debbie – there is a such a unique vibe with these cool art windows – the contrast with the old feel of the stone and well, just a uniqueness – 🙂
