Slovakia is a stunning country packed full of history, adventure and spectacular scenery, right at the heart of Europe. It has the world’s highest number of castles and châteaux with 180 castles and 425 châteaux, the most famous of which is the UNESCO-listed 900-year-old Spiš Castle, just outside the village of Žehra. In fact, Slovakia has no less than 20 UNESCO heritage sites. From the historic town of Banska Štiavnica to the country’s wooden churches and natural caves, there is plenty to explore. Don’t miss Bardejov which is an almost perfectly-preserved medieval town, with its fortified city walls.
Slovakia is incredibly beautiful. A testament to this fact is the country’s nine national parks and 14 protected landscape areas. As well as soaring mountain peaks and ancient forests, there are also over 6,000 caves and you can explore this underground world. Try the Domica Cave where you can cruise down the Styx River for a truly breath-taking experience.
And of course there’s stunning Bratislava, a melting pot of history, architecture, tradition, culture, art, drinks, food and fabulous people, right on the doorstep of Šamorín.
