Pavol Poljak was a prolific photographer of old Bratislava and his shots preserved many parts of the city that would be lost in time.

Extramural settlements Vydrica, Zuckermandel and Water Hill were located under the Bratislava Castle and held mostly pauper houses huddled together without any urban planning. This lent a specific charm to the neighbourhood, which was mostly demolished after World War II and during the construction of the SNP Bridge.
