beautiful city

some of you requested this thread here... so here we are

Bratislava, Capital of Slovakia

Bratislava is a historical town with more than two-thousand-year old rich history. On the other hand, it still ranks among the youngest cities of Europe that is just gradually discovered by visitors.
Last year, Bratislava was visited by 29 per cent of foreign visitors more than within the same period of the previous year. Bratislava belongs to trendy destinations of city tourism also due to the fact it is safe, still reasonable and manageable in terms of prices.
And maybe you dont know, but within 1536 – 1830, there were crowned 11 austro-hungarian kings and queens in the Dome of St. Martin, when the capital city of Hungary - Buda was occupied after a tragic battle with Turks at Mohac in 1526.
The period of highest upswing of the town is represented by the time of reign of Maria-Theresa (1740 - 1780). Since her accession to the throne, construction office of the Hungarian Royal Chamber started directing construction development in the town, controlling especially construction of public buildings (palace of Hungarian Royal Chamber, Water barracks and others). Large construction arrangements were also made in the castle that became a representative royal seat (not that of its Hungarian vice-regent) and a centre of social and political life of top level.

Bratislava, capital city of the Slovak Republic, is situated in Central Europe. It is stretching on both banks of the Danube-river, the second biggest river in Europe, and at the foot of the mountains of Small Carpathians. Bratislava spreads at the borders of three countries, neighbouring with Hungary in the south and Austria in the west. In administrative terms, the town is divided in 5 districts and 17 city parts.
Population: 446,819


New bridge over the Danube river...




































































































































































and keep on rolling :-)))

Awesome city! I would love to visit Bratislava sometimes soon (hopefully I will this May)..

I like cities with castle hills, they really add to the ambient and the overall image of the town.. Plus the view is nice..

And be sure, it´s not enough to pay 1 night in 4star hotel... it´s just funny... they never been here, and I dont know,.... sipmly, I dont understand, why they "draw" bratislava and Slovakia like this... that we even dont have any railway here, and firs railway station is in Vienna, we dont have cars, etc.... I dont understand....

broad gauge: 100 km 1.520-m gauge
standard gauge: 3,512 km 1.435-m gauge (1,588 km electrified)
narrow gauge: 49 km (1.000-m or 0.750-m gauge) (2003)

Probably because of its vicinity to Vienna noone bothers to do the extra mile and see Bratislava?

Eurotrip - typical American propaganda, they tend to exaggerate thinks to make it laughable - Brits where portrayed as football hooligans and Italians as gays or something and so on, it is rubbish movie made little money at box offices and full of ignorant prejudices.

Wouldn't give monkey what Americans have to say about EE or any part of Europe when most of them live in s**t holes.


PS, Slovakia is great, I loved it a lot, it is nice place to vist was there in 2001.
