Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is situated at the very border with Austria and Hungary. With a population of only about 450,000, Bratislava is small, but it boasts a rich and varied history and a stunning setting on the Danube, only about 60 km downstream from Vienna. The fact that these two cities, the closest capital cities in Europe, were once connected by tram is a testament to their strong historical bond. The city is divided into its historical town center, situated on the banks of the river Danube, and the newer part of the city known as Petržalka, easily recognizable by its numerous skyscrapers and residential blocks.
