Photographs: Hockey Statues Around Bratislava

Photographs: Hockey Statues Around Bratislava

Below are ten photos of statues that were positioned around Bratislava during the IIHF World Ice Hockey Championships.  The Championships were held during the last week of April and the first two weeks of May 2011. Bratislava and Kosice both played host.

It was hard to walk into a pub or restaurant without finding a hockey game on or being replayed during those weeks.  And it was hard to walk more than a few steps without seeing someone wearing the colors of a visiting hockey team, or wearing Slovak hockey jerseys.  Lots of Slovaks love hockey, as I’ve pointed out in other articles on this site.

The pictures below were sent to me by a visitor to Bratislava – Peter Propper.  Thank you to Peter for sharing them.   Scroll over each picture to read its caption, pointing out where each picture was taken.  Can you name each spot in Bratislava without peeking at the captions?   Enjoy the photos.   –  Allan
