In the school year 2002/3 during English language lessons, high school students from the then-class 2.GB at St. Vincent de Paul High & Primary School in Bratislava, Slovakia, wrote essays on Bratislava's 2nd district, that mostly consists of the large city part called Ružinov.

Ružinov is considered one of the greenest city parts of Bratislava. Although Bratislava is centuries old, most of Ružinov (with the exception of its section called Prievoz) was simply barren land 100 years ago. Today, the headquarters of the parliamentary parties of the 3 most recent prime ministers of Slovakia are located in Ružinov, within walking distance from our school building.

Writing the essays was part of the students' work on the school's Socrates Project titled Regional Culture: Identity in the Past, Identity for the Future. The essays are reproduced here with all (many) original mistakes uncorrected. Feel free to correct them! :-)

Bratislava - 2-nd district

The 2-nd district is the nicest part of Bratislava. It is really curious to find so many trees on one square kilometer in towns. There is situated a lot of schools. It is a district, in which there aren’t any skinheads. In last years there are many sprayers. There are anarchists, punkers and skaters. But most of the common kids from there are rappers and hip-hoppers. The example of it is the crew and hip-hop group called “Nová doba“ (The New Era).

It’s really a young group. You can see it in theirs texts. But no matter. They have a long carrier before themselves. It’s really interesting to study the carriers of groups. You can compare the carriers of different groups. As the sprayers they have to practice a lot . One makes tags in cursive letters, second in printing type letters and only one of them really knows the tag writing. But no matter. There are many parks there. It’s really fun there. It’s a really beautiful district.
