Slovakia is a playground for lovers of nature. It's a land abounding in large mountains and forests, still to this day peppered with many ancient castles. It's a paradise for hikers, a first stop for ski travellers to the Alps, and at the same time a place where you can see wild bears.

Slovakia is a small country, and this can be to your advantage – in just a week you can travel across the whole country and explore its most charming corners, from impressive waterfalls to mysterious caves. In the capital Bratislava you can visit a magnificent castle, and you‘ll find so many bars and cafés in the cosy Old Town, that you‘d need more than a long weekend to visit the best part of them.

The city of Poprad is situated not far from the High Tatras. Here you can not only relax in hot springs and spas, but in the winter also ski or snowboard down its nearby mountains. There are also many cross-country trails in Slovakia, all streaching across lush forests.

Also worth a mention is Spiš Castle. Now a UNESCO world heritage site, it is one of the biggest in the whole of Europe. The unforgettable structute, built into the magnificent landscape reminds more of a fantasy film than reality. You can visit the castle while travelling between Levoča and Prešov.

Boating the fast-flowing Slovakian rivers is another fantastic attraction the spring offers, along with visits to ethnographical villages and historical festivals. Enthusiasts of more relaxed activities can find Carpathian wine made in the country, and the famous ‘plum brandy’ slivovice and the so-called ‘tea of the Tatras’ – a heated herbal liqueur, a cup of either of which will give you rosy cheeks even on the coldest of days.

Slovakian cuisine also has specialites to offer: from soup, smoked meat and mushrooms to sweet plum-filled dumplings (often eaten as a main); from traditional goulash to stuffed peppers. As characteristic of many European menus, Slovakian cuisine is dominated by pork, potatoes, cheese and other heavy dishes, so in order to better function high in the mountains.
