Photographer's Note

I always enjoy walking through cobbled streets and Bratislava's old section is perfect for a day of wandering. This image was slightly cropped from the original.

A little about the history from

"When World War II ended, Bratislava underwent a political, economic, and social boom.

After 1945, Bratislava became an important European cultural centre. New theatre stages opened, with the most important today being the Slovak National Theatre with opera and ballet (1920), the P.O.Hviezdoslav Theatre (1955), Nová Scéna with musicals and plays, the Astorka, Korzo, Studio S, and others. Bratislava was also famous for its music. After the war, many new groups were formed. There is music all year round. The Slovak Philharmonic (1949) houses the National Symphony Orchestra, the Radio Symphony Orchestra, and others. Since 1965, Bratislava has also been known for its International Music Festival. In foreign countries, Bratislava is also recognized for its folk dance groups such as LÚÈNICA, S¼UK."
