Path alongside the north end of UFO Bridge. The bridge is also called the New Bridge (Nový most) or the Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising (Most SNP). It crosses the Danube River near St. Martin’s Cathedral. It is 430 metres (1,413 ft) in length and was completed in 1972. It took Tony and his partner roughly 10 minutes to cross and find the tower’s entrance!
