Bratislava-Pressburg-Pozsony

Hi guys!
I want to introduce you in my city Bratislava ( Pozsony, Pressburg) by some my photos of this city I hope you will enjoy!

image hosted on flickr


Bratislava is a capital city of Slovakia with cca. 450 000 inhabitants but all region of Bratislava have 600 000 inhabitants and studying, working here many peoples from other parts of Slovakia.
Bratislava is in southwestern Slovakia on both banks of the Danube River near to the border with Austria and Hungary.
Name Bratislava came from first Slavic settlement on today's city territory with name Brezalauspurch. This name came from name of Slavic prince Braslav or Břetislav and suffix "purch" was of a german origin.
German name Pressburg is garbled name from earliest "Brezalauspurch"
Hungarian name Pozsony came probably from Slavic personaly name Božan, Poznan but I'm not sure.
In cronics are mentioned many regional rulers of Bratislava castle, there's some of them: Ivanka, Uroš, Endre, Martin, Vladimir..
This means that the city had largerly Slovakian character and townspeople were Slovaks until the late middle ages.
First dated Hungarian settlement in city's neighbourhood was a settlement "Szeplaki" but the city had a clean Slavic/Slovak character until the 14/15. century, since this centuries was a city populated more by Germans and Hungarians and in modern times until the second world war the city was inhabited by Germans, Slovaks, Hungarians and Jews.
In period of Ottoman wars in Hungary, this city became capital city of the Hungarian state and all important nobility moved here.
In St. Martin cathedral were crowned many Austro-Hungarian monarchs.
The city was a multicultural, tolerant place for many nations but after world war, when Jews were deported in concentration camps and Hungarians and Germans must been moved off from new-created Czechoslovakia, the city became a cleanly Slovak.

Here are mixture of my photos

Thank you very much guys! I'm glad that you like Bratislava and I must admit too that it's a pretty amazing city. Just if you are in Vienna for an excursion, come here for a weekend and join to our city, too

Here are more photos ..

Central square in Bratislava is a really heart of Bratislava' Old City and during the year is here many events like Christmas markets or concerts.
And you can find here many good cafes or restaurants, too.

A special attraction on the bridge is its flying saucer-shaped structure housing a restaurant, called "UFO" (since 2005; previously called Bystrica), on the bridge's 84.6 metre pylon.
The restaurant is reached using an elevator situated in the left pillar, and offers a good view over Bratislava.
The deck was not accessible to people during communism in order to prevent people from seeing capitalist Austria.
