Where is Dunajská Streda?

Dunajská Streda is a charming small town in the south of Slovakia. It has about 22,600 inhabitants, the majority of Hungarian origin. It is situated in the middle of the Žitný ostrov Island, Europe's largest river island between the Danube, the Small Danube and the Váh. This island used to be an economic and trade center. Numerous special animal and plant species, especially many birds, live there. The capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, is only about 50 minutes away by car.

The city, with numerous historical magnificent buildings, was founded on the site of an ancient settlement. Literally translated, the city name Dunajská Streda means "place on the Danube where a market is held on Wednesdays".
