Trnava in Bratislava

Trnava is an important center of West Slovakia and is one of Slovakia's oldest cities (13th century). It was, during the period of the Turkish invasions, a religious center of Hungary, and became, as early as the 17th century, a university town. Numerous buildings from this era earned Travna the nickname of "The Slovak Rome".

This historic center was surrounded by medieval town walls (Gothic). The old university occupies the northwestern part of the Old Town. The visitor can also admire the Clarist convent, the University Church of St. John the Baptist and the Franciscan Church of St. James. The Cathedral of St. Nicholas, constructed in the area around the fortifications in the second half of the 14th century, deserves special attention. There are several other churches to visit in the city and also the Archbishop's Palace.
