Bratslav (or Breslov — sometimes transliterated as Bratzlav or Braclav ) is the name of the town in the Ukraine where Rebbe Nahman spent most of the last eight years of his life. It has given its name to the Hasidic movement he founded. Bratslav should not be confused with Bratislava in Czechoslovakia or Breslau in Germany. Bratslav is situated on the River Bug midway between Nemirov and Tulchin, in the region of Podolia.
