TOP 15 sights and places of one very beautiful country in the Heart of EUROPE!

1. The TATRAS

Magnificient mountain range bordering Poland and Slovakia and the highest and most attractive part of the Carpathians mountain circle. Filled with dramatic skylines, many untouched rock paths, high waterfalls, blue lakes, deep forests and represented by very rich flora and fauna. On the contrary to Alps this all beauty is concentrated on a relatively small area. Visited by hundreds of thousands tourists every year enjoying hiking, climbing, skiing or just relaxing.

TOP 15 sights and places of one very beautiful country in the Heart of EUROPE!

4. KOŠICE

Named in other three languages Kassa, Kaschau or Cassovia this cosmopolitan city and metropolis of the east offers the same splendour and beauty as capital Bratislava situated more than 400 km far, but with much more relaxed atmosphere of the less stressed second biggest city of the country. Awesome historical centre is dotted by great palaces, churches, St. Elizabeth Cathedral which is the most eastward situated gothic cathedral in Europe and museums. And when you will be tired of seeing these monuments you can just sit down in numerous caffees, bars and pubs and enjoy dynamic atmosphere of this city. For those who want to explore the country outside city awaits UNESCO cave of Jasov and Premonstratory monastery or Zádiel gorge in Slovak Karst National Park. And less than our you can visit smaller Košice, the Slovak fourth biggest city Prešov.
