Bratislava is largest and capital city of Slovakia. A Celtic tribe established the first significant settlement in the area in 200 BC. The area fell under Roman influence from the 1st to the 4th century AD and formed part of the Limes Romanus, a border defence system. The Slavs arrived between the 5th and 6th centuries during the Migration Period. On March 27, 1919, the name Bratislava was officially adopted for the first time. In 1993 the city became the capital of the newly formed Slovak Republic. Today the city has an estimated population of 429,000. This photo of the Bratislava skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 22nd of November 2010.
