Every year the first weekend of September Bratislava stages Coronation Festivites, a majestic reenactment of the historical coronation of Hungarian kings.
11 kings and eight queens were crowned in Bratislava between 1563 and 1830. Bratislava became the coronation city of Austria-Hungary following the battle of Mohacs in 1526, where the Ottoman Empire occupied parts of Hungary.
The 2010 Bratislava Coronation Festivities take place on September 5-6. The Coronation Parade starts on Sunday, September 5 at the Bratislava Castle and the ceremony will take place in the Old Town. This year the Festivities will commemorate the 1618 coronation of King Ferdinand II.
Throughout the weekend the Bratislava Fair takes place. Sunday culminates in fireworks at 8 pm.
