It may not draw the toursit numbers of its neighbour the Czech Republic, but dont let fool you, Slovakia is filled with amazing natural beauty, hilltop castles and a capital that is filled with so much charm and character.
After the Velvet Divorce (no bloodshed) in 1993, Czechoslovakia split into the 2 countries wee see today, the Czech Rupublic and Slovakia. This is a country that has a creative vibe, that is full of art, music, sports and a people who have a spirit that is infectous.
Bratislava the capital, is a great mix of places like Vienna and Prague put into one place. As part of the Astro-Hungarian empire, it was the capital of Hungry for 300 years. With churches from the 15th century, quirky statues popping out all around town, great cafes, cobbled streets and a castle overlooking the city and the Danube make this a great city to explore for a few days.
A country of just 5 million people, it can attract anyone from business travellers to history buffs, to cruise guests to those looking at venturing up north to the Tatra Mountains,and one of Europe’s great ski and winter destinations.
Outside of its cities, Slovakia boasts 10 national parks, with vast forests, rolling green hills and river and streams that are great to cycle or hike.
