Photographer's Note

Bratislava’s castle has been the essential part of the city’s panorama for many centuries. It has been also associated with the first written remark about Bratislava from the year 907. The palace with the central yard and 4 corner towers was built in times of the Hungary King Zigmund of the Luxembourgh’s reign in 15th century. The destructive fire in May 1811 destroyed not just the palace and its additional buildings, but also a large part of the extramural settlement. Today, it is in service to the state representation and to the Slovak national museum with its valuable archeological, historical and artistic collections. Visitors of Bratislava may spend some time here in the places where the history has passed through; they may admire the castle’s architecture and take pleasure in the beautiful view from the surrounding terraces or from the Crown tower. The castle belongs to the national monuments.
