Bratislava is the centre of national life, the seat of Slovakia´s president, government and parliament. It´s a city of universities, theatres, museums and galleries.

This range of hills, whose wooded peaks are a protected area and whose shouthern slopes are covered by vineyards, spreads north - east from the Danube for about 50 kilometres. Nestling in the Small Carpathians near Modra is the Renaissance Červený Kameň (Red Stone) fortress in its time the best fortifield castle in the Carpathians, built to defend against Turkish raiders. The area is surrounded by serene vineyard and it is possible to spot various statues of St. Urban, a patron saint of viticulture. The forested Small Carpathian hills are a popular leisure destination from Bratislava.
