What Slovakia offers

Slovakia is a central European country with vast forest areas covering forty percent of its territory. Slovakia is a landlocked country bordered by the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, and Austria, with ports on the Danube River at Bratislava and Komarno.

Slovaks share a common culture despite regional and even local differences in dialect, local customs and religion. The culture of Slovakia is the result of various folk traditions and because of its position in Central Europe it is influenced by Austrian, German, Polish and Hungarian cultures.

Slovakia’s economy continued its stellar growth at the outset of 2017 and remains one of the fastest-growing countries in the Eurozone. The country prides itself on its industrial heritage which has provided a stable base for the development of certain sectors such as automotive and electronics.

Explore the country’s breathtaking rocky mountain ranges, canyons and gorges, mysterious mountain valleys, winding trails and beautiful waterfalls. Rare flora and fauna and many other irresistible natural landscapes are found all over Slovakia. Make sure to visit Slovakia’s spas which are among the oldest and finest in Central Europe.
