Reader feedback: Is Bratislava a capital or suburb?

Re: Banská Bystrica more attractive than ever, Flash news briefs, July 12 - 18, Vol 10, No 27

Those not from Slovakia may not know where the working people in Bratislava are from. Go have a look Sunday evening at the railway station or bus station in Bratislava and you will see the people coming for work from all cities and villages of Slovakia. We are also paying taxes, so why should we only travel to Bratislava for work? Why do Bratislava citizen not travel to the east? I can speak English and I am not from Bratislava, or Pressburg. Anyway, what is so attractive in Bratislava except that it is the capital of Slovakia? There are so many more beautiful cities in Slovakia. And do not think smart people live only there, in that suburb of Vienna.
