Colorful bridge attraction as the weather forecast in Bratislava


Bridge new attraction in Bratislava

Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, has its new attraction since autumn 2016. The SNP bridge is changing colors according to the weather forecast.

It is illuminated at night. It does not light whole night, instead it lights every 15 minutes for 5  minutes.

If look at the bridge you shall know what the weather will be like the next day.

Colors of SNP bridge 

What does that mean in practice? Well, there are 4 colors used (as of 2016) and that practically means that:

  • if the bridge has blue color  => it will be raining or snowing the next day in Bratislava
  • if the bridge has green color  => the next day  will be cloudy or foggy
  • if the bridge has yellow color  => the next day will be – guess – yes sunny ! 🙂
  • if the bridge has red color  => the next day will be windy.

Maybe this is not the most intuitive, however – who cares, the most important is that it lights and it has its meaning right? 🙂

It is not only UFO that lights but ther are lights also under the bridge and at public transport stops.

UFO restaurant

UFO is the restaurant at the top of the bridge – really cool one.
UFO and SNP bridge belong to main dominants of Bratislava.

If you plan to visit Bratislava, you may book accommodation via or via – these are platforms I truly recommend and you can get a good deal for hotels right, and airbnb for good range of apartments.
