Franciscan Church and Cloister
These rank among the oldest sacral buildings of the city. The
Franciscan church was constructed in Gothic style in the 13th century.
It was consecrated in 1297 in the presence of King Andrew II. In the 17
th century, it was rebuilt in Renaissance style and, in the 18 th
century in baroque style. The complex of several buildings on gothic
foundations dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries. In the course of
the 17 th and18th centuries, it was rebuilt several times, the last in
classicist style during 1860 - 1861. In the beginning of the 15th
century, a Gothic tower was placed on the walls of the cloister, part
of which was damaged and replaced with a copy in 1897. The cloister was
witness to many historic events. In the Middle Ages mayors were elected
here, while the Hungarian assembly elected Ferdinand of Hapsburg here
in 1526 to become king.

[img1]The finals of the European Trophy - the Red Bulls Salute - will be played from December 13th to December 16th, 2012 in Vienna and Bratislava. It will be the first time the Red Bulls Salute, an invitational tournament that became the final of the European Trophy in 2010, will not be played in Salzburg.
Launched as the Red Bulls' invitation tournament and now the highlight of their international calendar, the event continues to break new ground and after seven years it will, for the first time, not be staged in Salzburg. The Red Bulls Salute 2012 is seeking new international challenges and this year will, in addition to Vienna - which was added as a venue last year - take place for the very first time in Bratislava (Slovakia).
Maros Krajci, General Manager of Slovan Bratislava Hockey Club says: "Bratislava is looking forward to welcoming the final tournament of the most prestigious ice hockey club competition in Europe. The city proved to be a fine host of the last year´s IIHF World Championship in its modernized 10,000 seat arena. Bratislava will get another great opportunity to foster its international image and attractiveness on the background of a first-class sporting event. For me personally, hosting Europe´s best hockey clubs will be a first-class gift for our enthusiastic fans at the end of the year in which we celebrate the 90th anniversary of playing ice hockey in our city."
