Vrakuňa is located in the eastern part of Bratislava and almost 20 000 inhabitants live here. This city part does not host any kind of industrial business, however is situated near the Slovnaft refinery. One of the well-known infamous places is also located here; it is called Pentagon. It is a complex of block of apartment with the inadaptable inhabitants. Many gypsies, junkies and poorer families live here, and that gives you a picture how the place looks like. You should not visit this "ghetto" at night, unless you do not want to be robbed.
