About BratislavaSatellite 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.
Bratislava is located in the southwestern part of the country, at the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers, at the country's border to Austria.
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.
Today the city is the political, cultural, and economic center of Slovakia. Bratislava has a population of about 420,000 inhabitants (2014). 80 km west of Slovakia's capital lies the Austrian capital Vienna, the combined metropolitan areas of both cities forms an urban region with 3 million inhabitants, it is referred to as the Bratislava – Vienna Twin City Region.
