Beautiful Slovakia !

You are now entering my very first VT page!

Slovakia is a hidden treasure of Eastern Europe: Bratislava is well worth a visit as the capital city, and the High Tatra region is a hiking heaven with snowcapped mountains, lakes, and waterfalls galore. As an additional bonus, it is not very expensive and even in high season not overrun by tourists.

What I especially liked was that - when driving through the countryside - it seems that time stood still here. I went through rural villages that reminded me very much of how Germany looked in my childhood, before agriculture was taken over by modern technology.

Would love to go there a second time !

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:nature; excellent hiking trails; low prices

    I went in August for one afternoon for the first time to Bratislava and I must admit that I was surprised very pleasantly - the center of the city (the old town) is very nice indeed!

    Michael- some lovely pictures of Slovakia. I didn't get to see Bratislava very well-concentrated more on castles and the Tatras. Well done!

    This IS a fabulous page with gorgeous photos - now I wish I had spent a few days in this country than just a few hours in Bratislava. :))
