Slovakia: Unknown and Closer than You Think
Slovakia as a travel destination is still relatively untouched by mass tourism. And this is despite its location – you can easily reach Slovak capital Bratislava in one hour from Vienna. A bit less in focus of travellers compared to its neighbours Austria, Czechia, Hungary and Poland, it can offer you a surprisingly enriching travel experience.
Slovakia is a landlocked country of the size a bit bigger than Denmark or Switzerland and the population over 5 million. Its central location caused that Slovak history was influenced by Celts, Romans, Turks, Hungarians, Czechs, Germans and Soviets. All these influences left traces of a diverse cultural heritage. Ancient excavations, gothic cathedrals, medieval castle ruins, chateaus of Hungarian nobility, industrial and mining monuments, functionalism of the first Czechoslovak republic and communist-era landmarks.
