Bratislava – the Slovakian capital close to the Austrian boarder
Historically Bratislava has always been a multicultural city. Celts, Romans, Jews, Hungarians and of course also Slovakians have left their footprints. The Austrian-Hungarian monarchy under the reign of the Habsburgers also has a big impact on the city nowadays. Magnificent buildings and palaces were built in Bratislava during this time, which make the old town of Bratislava very attractive to tourists. Furthermore, a castle is located in Bratislava. From there you’ll have an amazing view on the old town. However, communism also had a big impact on the cityscape.
