Vienna to Bratislava

First day of our bike tour from Vienna to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Slovakia separated from Czech republic in 1993. We cycled through the former "iron curtain" which was controlled by the Soviets in 1989.
Weather was hot and still ,but with good paths we made good time.
Stopped at a lovely castle/ hunting lodge owned by the Habsburgs for coffee.
Once in Bratislava wondered around the town centre before having dinner in a quaint restaurant and then walking up to the castle on the hot balmy night.
