Bratislava (Bratislavský kraj), one of the regions of Slovakia, is located in the southwestern part of the country. It includes its regional capital city, also called Bratislava, which is also the country’s capital. A main geographical feature of this region is the mountain range of Little Carpathians, which separates its territory in two: the Záhorie (west) and the Danubian Lowland (east), the latter being the most fertile. Below the forested areas of the Carpathians mountains there are plenty of vineyards and villages specialised in wine-making, and thanks to them, the Small Carpathians Wine Route was created, for wine enthusiasts and workers.
