Trnava is a city in western Slovakia, 47km to the north-east of Bratislava, on the Trnávka river. It is the capital of a kraj. It is the seat of a Roman Catholic archbishopric (1541–1820 and then again since 1977). The city has a historic center. Because of the many churches within its city walls, Trnava has often been called "parva Roma", i.e. "Little Rome", or more recently, the "Slovak Rome".Names and etymologyThe name of the city is derived from the Slovak word tŕnie ("thornbush") which characterized the river banks in the region. Many towns in Central Europe have a similar etymology including Trnovo in Slovakia as well as Tarnów (Poland), Tarnow (Germany), Veliko Tarnovo (Bulgaria) and Tyrnavos (Greece) among others. When it developed into an important market town, it received the Hungarian name of Szombathely (Sumbot 1211) referring to the weekly market fairs held on Saturdays (szombat). However, this name was only used by the royal chamber, as is indicated by the adoption of the Slovak name rather than the Hungarian name by German newcomers after the Mongol invasion.
