Set against a backdrop of wooden churches, brooding forests and snow-capped peaks, Slovakia is a land where folktales come to life.
Boasting ancient castle ruins, cool street art and an array of cafés and bars, Slovakia offers an opportunity to discover a relatively tourist-free place before it changes forever. Still searching for its ‘famous for…’ line, Slovakia captivates its travellers with its mix of old and new, Bratislava’s quirky character and the tremendous peaks of the Tatra Mountains.
