Quay at Bratislava
Bratislava was formerly known as Brezalauspurc, Preßburg, Pozsony, and Prešporok. In 1993, the city became the capital of the newly formed Slovak Republic. Its location on the borders with Austria and Hungary makes it the only national capital that borders two independent countries.
