Bratislava is the only capital in the world located on the border of three sovereign states – Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. Besides its strategic location on the River Danube, the city takes pride in its rich history.

Bratislava is in the heart of Europe and is 65 km far from Vienna, 200 km from Budapest and 330 km
