History of Section:

Original idea to establish ESN section at STUBA come from the promise which gave Michal Kuročka during his Erasmus to members of ESN in Barcelona. He promised that he will take care of Erasmus students at his home university and to found section there. He was cooperating two years with another sections in Bratislava to provide services for Erasmus students. At that time there was just few International students at STUBA. But as the number was growing there was need to make new section and to coordinate team at STUBA. ESN STUBA was established at 1.12.2012. on National Platform in Kosice

Something about City:

Bratislava with its old-town charm, sophisticated restaurants, traditional pubs, good music ranging from jazz to opera, stylish people, has a Europe's greatest river as a backdrop. In case you want to get more info about the history of the city you should know that Bratislava used to be known as Pressburg to German speakers or Pozsony to Hungarian speakers and it got its present name only 90 years ago.  However, the city has a long and proud history that dates back to pre-Roman times. Even the local nature offers hillsides on the edge of the city, whichhave beenhome to vineyards for centuries. An impressive range of architecture, languages and cuisine offers many free time activities. One of the most valued landmarks is the Bratislava Castle with its long and chequered history (it had been destroyed more than once). It survived a major restoration and now offers great views over the medieval old town and the Danube valley from its fortifications.Communism, too,left its mark: across the river the unmistakable ranks of concrete housing blocks - paneláky in Slovak - line the horizon, with the unique UFO-style New Bridge in the foreground. And if, after all this, you still want some big-city 'glamour' feel free to exploit cheap travel options to Vienna, Budapest or Prague, which are close enough for a daytrip.
