Slovakia 2015 Stamp Issue
Universitas Istropolitana





The Universitas Istropolitana from the 16th century is frequently – but incorrectly – referred to as Academia Istropolitana. In literal translation it means - University/Academy in the city at Danuby riverUniversitas Istropolitana is the first university founded on the territory of present Slovakia.

There is also a planetoid in the asteroid belt named (11614) Istropolitana to commemorate this University. 

In 1967 Czechoslovakia issued a silver - 10 Korunas - coin to commemorate Quincentenary of Istropolitana.
