In the old town, houses are being restored, as seen on the right above. There are few dilapidated buildings remaining and our guide told us this is only because of legal issues in determining ownership of the buildings. The descendants of those who owned the homes prior to 1948 are being sought out to take possession once again.
These are the former stables of the castle. Yellow was Maria Theresa's favourite colour and many of the buildings in Austria and here in Bratislava are yellow. The colour came to be known as "Imperial Yellow."
The delicate iron work on the buildings is enchanting. And the pastries...yum!
