Photo of Slovakia

Slovakia can be summed up by the castle ruins of Spissky Hrad, 3km south of Spisske Podhradie: instead of undergoing numerous facelifts, like many European castles, it has been left in its authentic state. Slovakia is a land left as it has always been. From June to August folk festivals occur nationwide and the biggest, the Vychondná Folklore Festival, occurs near to the town of Poprad in July giving you the chance to experience a way of life that although centuries old still continues.

Finding yourself in Slovakia in early autumn will let you experience the music dissipating into the night skies of Bratislava as music festivals permeate September, but there's one swinging final hurrah to be found with the long weekend of Jazz before the cold comes down from the mountains. You won't be too worried about that though as you trek through Slovensky Raj (Slovak Paradise Park), doing your best Indiana Jones impressions over the bridges, ladders and chains that you'll encounter as you follow the trail!

The Slovakian motto is "May Mountains bring people peace" and once at the Tatras Mountains it is hard to see how they couldn't! The stunning mountain range boasts commanding trails and breath-taking peaks looking down on the popular skiing grounds.

Holiday ideas featuring Slovakia

  • Cruise the Danube

    A Danube Cruise is a relaxing way to see some of Europe's most beautiful and historic cities. You're tied to this ancient trade route but you'll never be short a view of a castle, a medieval town to explore or a vineyard to stroll though.
