The Little-Big City
Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia
Its population is approximately 500,000 and it is also the largest city in the country. Bratislava lies on both banks of the river Danube in southwestern Slovakia. Its originality between capitals is that it borders with two countries – Austria (Vienna 60 km apart) and Hungary. If you are wondering whether you need to speak Slovak to get around here, you can stop worrying now.
Most of the people speak English, as well as the personnel in the restaurants and bars in the city center. There are many cities in the Europe, but only some of them have a unique atmosphere you will not forget. We strongly believe that Bratislava is one of them.
