|There was a full-day excursion to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It included a trip to Devin castle an ancient site by the border between Slovakia and Austria. A tour of the city in an antique road-train and a walking tour of the centre. Throw in a great lunch and fine dinner in a converted cinema and you had a tired but happy couple of hundred delegates.||A half-day excursion took in a
walking tour of Piestany's sites, a visit to the fascinating
town museum and a boat trip on the river Vah. The evening meal
was in a building reminiscent of old style palaces.
