Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An engineering feat built by the Russians. It’s an easy walk across on a walkway below the auto traffic level of the bridge so you don’t have to worry about cars whizzing by. Great views of the Bratislava skyline from the other side. If you're so inclined you can ride to the top of the UFO tower for even better views.

As scientists now want UFO's called UAP's, do they need to change its name?
Not quite sure what to call it, New Bridge, Most SNP or UFO bridge.
Its still and exceptionally well designed and decent looking bridge. It spans the Danube River while being supported by a single pylon cable stayed system. Pretty impressive engineering when you look into it.
The top has cars on it while both the undersides of the bridge are for pedestrians only (just watch the cray cyclists though).
the coolest thing is the big UFO tower on the top of it, which you can visit and has a restaurant and observation deck also which is a must to see. It has a great view of the castle from it along with a good view of Bratislava old town as well.
Make sure you have a look at it and wander across it if you have the time.

One of the most iconic features of modern-day Bratislava is the Novy Most, or "New Bridge." This modern thoroughfare connects the two halves of the city separated by the river Danube. Since 2012, the official name of the bridge was changed to "Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising" to commemorate the Slovak National Uprising against Nazi during World War II, but locals prefer to call it "UFO Bridge" for its UFO-shaped observation desk at the top. It was built between 1967 and 1972. The total length of this steel bridge is 1,413 feet. An interesting fact is that this bridge is the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge with one pylon and one cable-stayed plane – quite an impressive engineering feat! One of the best features of the bridge is that the lower levels are reserved for pedestrian and bicycle traffic only. Of course, the most notable feature of the Novy Most is the UFO-shaped restaurant and observation deck mounted on top of the bridge's 278-foot-tall pylon. The 360⁰ panoramic view provides a great photo op of the Bratislava Castle.

The Novy Most (New Bridge) is a futuristic cable-stay bridge spanning the Danube River in Bratislava. Everyone, including locals, call it the "UFO Bridge" because of the disc-shaped observation deck and restaurant at one end. The bridge was built between 1967 and 1972.

New Bridge (Novy Most) would be just another boring bridge if it did not have a UFO shaped lookout deck on top of it!

It's a nice bridge anyway but with its UFO tower upon it as well, it is fun and exciting to see and to drive across underneath it.

Easiest way to get between Old Town and the UFO. There's a wide pedestrian path underneath the road for bikers and walkers, so you don't have to walk with the traffic, which is nice.

Bridge gives you a modernist feeling, and leaves a beautiful silhouette over the Danube on a sunny day. Very different style from the old historic centre.

The bridge feels pretty modern and new. Iconic view of Bratislava and very different from the historic center, a different style.

New Bridge (Novy Most) is the first surprise that greets you as you travel to the center of old Bratislava. Its remarkable silhouette over the Danube immediately attracts attention. Modern and impressive, the bridge is one of the symbols of the city.
