Bratislava Train Stations

Since the Middle Ages Bratislava has been a city at the crossroads between other major capitals such as Budapest, Vienna, Prague, and other important cities to the north. Many train stations were built at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries during the industrial revolution. However, some had to be demolished to make way for city expansion.
