Bratislava is an exciting city with deep historical and cultural roots. Being situated on the Southwest of Slovakia, it lies on the left bank of the Danube river near the point where the borders of Slovakia, Austria, and Hungary meet. The area was settled as early as from the fifth millennium BC. More specific historical evidence, however, begins only in the fourth century BC, when a well-organized Celtic settlement with highly developed craft production arose here. The Roman conquest of the Danube Valley (Pannonia) by Druse and Tiberius signalled the end of Celtic culture and beginning of Romanization. In the course of the 10th and 11th centuries, the area became part of the rising Hungarian Kingdom spreading over the Carpathian Valley. In 1919, the city became one of the two main administrative and business centres of the newly formed Czechoslovakia. Since January 1st, 1993 it has been the capital of the newly formed Slovak Republic and the seat of the country’s central institutions.

Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, with its round half a million inhabitants is the largest city in the country. The city lies on both sides of the river Danube and it is an important industrial, cultural, educational and science center in the region.
