Occupying both banks of the River Danube and the left bank of the River Morava, Bratislava lies in the southwest Slovakia as the only national capital that borders two independent countries. It was due to its location that Bratislava became the capital and coronation town of the Hungarian Kingdom in the 16th century, as well as the place where its crown jewels were kept. In the past, Slovakia’s largest city was known mainly as Pressburg or Pozsony, since it got its present name only 90 years ago. Nowadays its name is not only well established, but as the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava is the political, cultural and economic centre of Slovakia.
