  • Description

    THERE IS STILL NO DECISION ON THE SITE FOR THE TOP LEVEL TALKS BETWEEN THE LEADERS OF THE SOVIET UNION AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA. TWO SITES BEING SUGGESTED BY SOURCES IN PRAGUE ARE KOSICE AND BRATISLAVA.

    KOSICE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TOWN OF EASTERN SLOVAKIA. THE TOWN IS SHELTERED AND IS AN ESTABLISHED MARKET FOR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, INCLUDING FRUIT, WINE TOBACCO GRAIN AND SUGAR BEET. IN 1945 KOSICE WAS THE FIRST SEAT OF THE CZECHOSLOVAK GOVERNMENT AFTER THE GERMAN WITHDRAWAL AND SINCE THEN THE TOWN HAS BECOME AN INDUSTRIAL CENTRE FOR IRON AND CEMENT WORKS, PRINTING AND FOOD PROCESSING.

    BRATISLAVA IS THE THIRD CITY IN POPULATION OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND THE CAPITAL OF HISTORIC SLOVAKIA. IT LIES JUST EAST OF PRAGUE AND IS 190 MILES (306 KMS) FROM KOSICE. IT IS NEAR THE FRONTIERS OF AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY AND STANDS ON THE LEFT BANK OF THE DANUBE. ITS HISTORY GOES BACK TO THE 10TH CENTURY AND ITS ANCIENT CHURCHES AND BUILDINGS HAVE SURVIVED WARS AND CHANGING REGIMES.
