Celebrating the 90th anniversary
Make sure you know where you are. Bratislava is currently celebrating its 90th anniversary. Not that the city would be that young... It is just the part of its latest history related to the name Bratislava. Before 1919 the path would lead to Pressburg and Pozsonyi, which are the German and Hungarian names of the city. One of the most amazing facts is that the populatin of the city in 1910 was less than 80 thousand, compared to up to half a million, which is the population today, of which only about 14% were Slovaks. The majority of the population was Hungarian, Jewish and German then. After the end of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy Bratislava not only received a new name. It also played an important role in becoming a capital of the new country. However, the road was not as smooth as it seems today. The history is present everywhere. Do not miss the opportunity to behold the liasons with the past. For example the architecture of its center.
