SR, Bratislava: Bratislava Castle
A colossal building we can see today had many forms in the past - originaly it was a Celtic oppidum, then a fortified settlement, followed by towers and palaces, and finally a representative residence of the royal court. However, it has been a strategic position of this national cultural heritage (since 1961), an essential part of Bratislava rising above Dunaj, that remained invariable through ages. No wonder that the the castle is a symbol used on a back side of Slovak eurocoins.
It has been already several decades since the gradual reconstruction of the castle begun. Its purpose is to keep this proud national heritage for future generations and to make it accessible for tourists.
