Slovakia is a striking destination with several glacial lakes, national parks and charismatic castles. It provides a variety of outdoor entertainment; from skiing to rafting, visitors can enjoy a variety of activities.

Slovakia has very beautiful natural parks. Slovak Paradise National Park is one of the most picturesque areas, which has deep gorges, waterfalls and canyons. In a word, it has everything, perfect for enjoying outdoor activities.

The High Tatras are ideal for hiking. If you like skiing, visit the Jasna resort in the Demanovska valley. The Tatras are a popular destination all year round. During the winter you can ski and hike, and during the summer you can take a walk. Slovakia has many mineral springs and spas where you can relax.

Scattered between hills and valleys, there are numerous fortified castles, remains from the Middle Ages built near the hamlet and the main road as protection from invaders. In addition to a huge number of castles, Slovakia also boasts more than 6,000 caves and more than 1,300 mineral water springs! The largest architectural treasure in the country are the ancient wooden churches in northeastern Slovakia, unique in their construction without nails, which still function as religious buildings and which are on the UNESCO list.

The capital of Slovakia is the only capital in the world bordering two countries, Austria and Hungary. In addition, Bratislava is one of the smallest capitals in Europe with just under 450,000 inhabitants. In addition to the castles that you will see here, it is worth mentioning and visiting Michael's Gate, ie. the Tower, the old town and the Cathedral of St. Martin, as well as Slavin Hill with a monument of the same name that was erected in 1960 in memory of the thousands of Soviet soldiers who died liberating the city in World War II.

Slovakia has a continental climate with four different seasons. Summers are generally very hot. In winter, skiing is current, whose season starts at the end of December and lasts until March. Spring and autumn are generally ideal for visiting. Then there is no crowd and it is pleasant to see the cities and enjoy many other activities.

While the neighbouring Czech Republic and its capital Prague are one of the most visited destinations in Europe, Slovakia has remained silent with its relatively unexplored charms. Be one of the few who will go off the beaten path and discover all its beauties.
