City Orientation Walk

City Orientation Walk

Slovakian capital Bratislava straddles the river Danube right at the Austrian and Hungarian border. The closeness of these two countries has had its toll on the city's long and often tumultuous history in which the Austrians, Croats, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Jews, Serbs and Slovaks have played their role. It wasn't until 1919 that the city, prior to that known as Pressburg, got its contemporary name. This walk covers some of the most prominent sights of the historic part of Bratislava.
