About Bratislava

Bratislava Coat of ArmsSatellite view is showing Bratislava, formerly also known as Pressburg, largest city and capital of Slovakia, a central European country east of Austria and until 1993 part of former Czechoslovakia.

The city is inhabited since the Bronze Age (c. 3200–600 BC), it was a settlement at an important ford used to cross the Danube river, a crossroads of ancient (trade) routes like the Amber Road, connecting the Balkans or the Adriatic Sea to the Rhine river or the Baltic Sea. It was a town where people, goods, and ideas from many areas came together.
