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
  • Cons:not all locals speak english (but you`ll get along)

    We had planned on visiting the Tatras for a couple of days before heading to the pension that becames as our 'second home' in Saalfelden. One in our group changed jobs so he can't get enough time off. So the plans have been delayed but definately not cancelled!

    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. :))
