View on Bratislava from the UFO tower

Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia and lies at its southwestern edge. It has around 500 000 inhabitants and the national language is Slovak. If you are wondering whether you need to speak Slovak to get around here, you can stop worrying now. Most of the people speak English, and personnel in the restaurants and bars (especially in the city center) are required to speak English, too. For those who until this moment thought that Slovakia is the same as Slovenia, we have another surprising info: we pay by euro here :)
