Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, has its new attraction since autumn 2016. The SNP bridge is changing colours according to the weather forecast.
The bridge is iluminated 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.
What does that mean in practice? Well, there are 4 colours 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 in Bratislava will be cloudy or foggy
- if the bridge has yellow color => the next day in Bratislava will be - guess - yes sunny ! :)
- if the bridge has red color => the next day in Bratislava 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 is the restaurant at the top of the bridge - really cool one.
UFO and SNP bridge is one of the main dominants of Bratislava.
