Svaty Jur

2.1
Svätý Jur is a small town northeast of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The name means Saint George, and the town's coat of arms shows the saint killing the dragon. Between 1960 and 1990, the Communist government forced the town to use a "non-religious" name Jur pri Bratislave. Svätý Jur has a population of 5,523 citizens.GeographySvätý Jur is situated in the Pezinok District of the Bratislava Region in southwestern Slovakia. The surrounding areas include large vineyards in the nearby Little Carpathians and the unique Šúr swamps, a protected area.HistoryArchaeological excavations date the original settlement to the Hallstatt period and the Quadi period.In the 9th century, a Great Moravian castle was built here. Svätý Jur was first mentioned in a written source in 1209 and received a town charter in 1299. It became a royal free town in the Kingdom of Hungary in 1647.Defensive city walls were constructed between 1603 and 1664, but Svätý Jur was devastated by the Ottoman Turks in their invasion of 1663. The Ottoman troops also destroyed the White Castle (Biely Kameň), which had been an important administrative center of the region until then.
