Region of Bratislava - Slovakia
Bratislava Region is, with its extend of 2052 km², the smalles region of Slovak Republic, but, thanks to its position, it has an international importance. Important railways and travel routes are crossing here, including international airport and port on Danube-river. Owing to its small extend and presence of capital of the country, its density of population is the biggest.
While in the past there were up to 12 towns (bridges and fords) on the Austrian-Slovak border, where it was possible to cross the Morava River, during the period of the so-called not a single road bridge survived the Iron Curtain. The only exception was the railway bridge between Devínská Nová Ves and the town of Marchegg, but it also operated only in a limited mode.

At the eastern foot of the Little Carpathians near the wine-growing town of Modra, the castle colossus Červený Kámen, protruding from the wooded landscape, will fascinate you from afar. You can get here either from the village of Častá or from the neighboring village of Píla.
