Top Experiences in Slovakia
Bratislava: With its compact old town, charming city streets, and outdoor café culture, Bratislava is a wonderful place to visit. While not as popular as other central European cities such as Vienna or Prague, Bratislava is underrated as a European destination, and is a refreshing experience in the summer as a city that has just as much appeal as other European cities without the crowds.
High Tatras (Slovakian side): The High Tatras of Slovakia are an outdoor paradise. Jagged mountains, emerald green lakes, rugged hiking trails, and cable cars all come together to form the perfect adventure destination.
Hiking To Vel’ká Svišt’ovka and Zelene Pleso in the Tatras: This hike is easier than many of the hikes in the High Tatras. Even so, this hike is not to be underestimated and even requires chains on a surprisingly hard downhill portion. For stunning mountain views and a visit to several vividly green alpine lakes, the hike to the summit is worth the trek.
Rysy of the High Tatras: Rysy is a mountain in the High Tatras that straddles the border between Poland and Slovakia. It is the tallest mountain in Poland and the highest mountain in the High Tatras that you can hike to without a guide.
Slovak Paradise National Park: A unique national park featuring an outdoor obstacle course that runs through waterfalls and valleys, you will feel like a ninja warrior walking on catwalks even if you are going there to take a break from the High Tatras.
