Cities and towns within Nitra County in medieval period
Languages of publication
The territory of Nitra region was quite densely populated since primeval ages. This trend continued during medieval period, after establishment of Hungarian state, as well as in centuries of early modern period. Consequently it was developing the network of cities and towns, which meditated the exchange of goods within local markets, as well as in more distant areas. At the beginning of the 16th century only one independent royal city (Skalica) could be found on this territory, except that several cities and more than 20 towns. The differentiation between cities and towns is quite problematic due to the fact, that some royal cities known in 14th century changed ownership into hands of noblemen, thus became towns and were not able to uphold the status of city.
