The Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising, commonly known as Most Slovenského národného povstania or Most SNP in short, is a road bridge over the Danube river in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia. The bridge was built in late 1960s and early '70s at the height of Communist excess, in honor of the 1944 resistance movement against the Nazi forces. The very retro-futuristic SNP Bridge was inspired by the optimistic futurism of the 1960s, evident from the flying saucer-shaped structure at the top of the bridge’s only pylon. The UFO structure actually houses a restaurant reached using an elevator and offers a beautiful panoramic view of Bratislava.
