BRATISLAVA, CROSSROADS OF HISTORY, CULTURE AND EXPERIENCES

Located on the banks of the Danube, Bratislava is the capital of the Slovak Republic, a member of the European Union since 2004, of the Euro Zone and of the Schengen Area. With its 500.000 inhabitants, the “small big city” is the only capital to share a border with two other EU states: Austria and Hungary. Vienna Airport is only 65 km and 40 minutes drive from the city center. Bratislava enjoys a record tourist attendance: 1.2 million visitors in 2016, an increase of 15% compared to 2015 and with a further increase expected in 2017. To celebrate this performance, the city obtained on June 1 the GOLDEN APPLE (Golden Apple), equivalent to the OSCAR DU TOURISME, awarded by the International Federation of Tourism Journalists and Writers (FIJET).

Bratislava Castle & S. Martin’s Cathedral
A little history
The first inhabitants settled in the Stone Age before becoming 
an Oppidum in the first century BC and moving to the southern 
territories of the Roman Empire.
In the 9th century, the city was incorporated into the Great 
Moravian Empire and then fell into the fold of the Kingdom of 
Hungary in 1526. Hungarian kings and queens were crowned there 
between 1563 and 1830. It remained an integral part of the 
Austro-Hungarian Empire until 'at the end of World War II under 
the name PRESSBURG.
On January 1, 1993, Slovakia became an independent country by 
separating from Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic).
