THE CITY WHERE YOU FIND REAL LIFE

The Capital of the Slovak Republic BRATISLAVA, also referred to as the Beauty on the Danube can not only boast interesting history but it also is the centre of the most dynamically developing region of central Europe at present.

BRATISLAVA (population 425,500), situated in the south-west of Slovakia stretches on both banks of the Danube and in the foothills of the Little Carpathian Mts. Thanks to this favourable position it was always a commercial centre. Today the historic places witnesses to the rapid development of the young Slovak Republic. In spite of its exciting history, Bratislava is one of the youngest Capitals of the world and its population is also very young. The modern metropolis is opened to Europe and to the world as proved by the increasing number of foreign visitors of most diverse countries. They are attracted by the cosiness of the rather small city that nevertheless possesses a throbbing social life and historic charms combined with the most recent trends. Palaces, modern shopping and trade centres, admirable arts of the Slovak cooks and brewers, friendly people and various international cultural or sport events, exhibitions, and business opportunities are the reasons why it is worth of visit.
You should visit at least three of these places to be able to say you’ve experienced Slovakia. The most interesting cities, unique nature, spas, and UNESCO sites that have survived centuries. Slovakia’s tourism opportunities are rich and varied. Come and enjoy for yourself something that you won’t find anywhere else!  Bratislava, The Tatras,  Spis Castle, Kosice,  Slovak Karst Caves, Bardejov.
