IntroductionAs Slovakia’s capital and largest city, Bratislava has become a prime destination for visitors from across Europe. As well as being a popular and forward-thinking city, Bratislava is also the economic, cultural and political capital of the country.
Bratislava boasts nearly all the large financial and business institutions that are based in Slovakia and as such attracts a wide range of wealthy individuals who have encouraged the entertainment industry to grow beyond recognition, in recent years. Bratislava remains multicultural, primarily due to its central location within Europe, with influences mainly from Slovaks, Hungarians, Czechs, Germans, Jews and Austrians.
Currently, Bratislava’s population is around 450,000 although this increases during the summer months when visitors from across Europe descend upon what is seen as an excellent location for a cheap break!
