BRATISLAVA REGION is the smallest of the 8 regions of Slovakia, situated in the south-west of Slovakia and dominated by the river Danube and Small Carpathian mountain range. The uniqueness of the region is also defined by its borders to Hungary and Austria with Bratislava and Vienna being the two closest capital cities in Europe.

In a small area you can experience both, the bustle of a city and peaceful, traditional countryside. Bratislava, which is one of the youngest capitals in Europe, is very rich in historical heritage. Throughout history Bratislava had been a site where power became concentrated several times. Nowadays, it is a centre of business, cultural events, sports and leisure activities.

The Small Carpathians area is famous for its rich wine growing tradition. It is covered by hectares of vineyards and cosy wine cellars. The delicious wines are gaining international recognition and popularity amongst tourists. Besides rich natural and cultural heritage the region also offers many opportunities for cycling, water sports and hiking. Welcome to Bratislava Region!
