Vráble ( _hu. Verebély) is a town in the Nitra District, Nitra Region, western Slovakia.

Geography

It is located in the Danubian Hills on the Žitava river, about 20 km south-east-east from Nitra. The cadastral area of the town has an altitude from 140 to 240 m ASL. There's a small dam called "Vodná nádrž Vráble" west of the town.

The town has three parts: Vráble proper, and the former villages of Dyčka and Horný Ohaj (both annexed 1975).

History

The oldest evidence of the settlement of Vráble comes from the Neolithic age (6000-2000 BC). The first written reference is from 1265 as "Verebel". In Vráble, there was the oldest post-station. The city kept an agricultural character in the 19th and 20th centuries. Economic development has influenced the architecture of the city. After break-up of Austria-Hungary in 1918, the town became part of Czechoslovakia and received status of the district capital (until 1960). After the First Vienna Award, the town was from 1938 to 1945 part of Hungary.
