Why Visit Slovakia?
The country enjoys some truly breathtaking, rugged natural beauty, with national parks, mountain ranges and multiple UNESCO Sites both natural and manmade. Slovakia’s rich history can be seen in the medieval façade of many of its cities, with the capital of Bratislava being no exception. So whether it’s culture or nature you’re seeking, Slovakia is the perfect destination.
Must-sees in Slovakia
UNESCO-protected, the Wooden Churches of the Slovak Carpathians are essential viewing and date back to the 16th century, with some structures built without a single nail. The High Tatras is Slovakia’s biggest national park, favoured for skiing. Slovak Paradise is another, with stunning waterfalls.
Slovakia’s Spa Towns
Slovakia is home to many spa towns, including the UNESCO-protected Bardejov with an intact medieval centre. Rajecké Teplice’s spa is a huge draw to the small town, while Piešťany is the country’s most famous, offering spa therapy to thousands of guests each year.
