Hotels in Slovakia
A landlocked nation that has historically been greatly influenced by its more powerful neighbors, Slovakia is just recently becoming its own nation. Slovakia lies in the center of Europe and is bordered by Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. Gaining independence in 1993, Slovakia is one of Europe’s youngest nations and quickly becoming a hot spot for tourists, with the capital city of Bratislava welcoming nearly 1 million tourists each year.
Because of its geographic location, Slovakia has always been a cultural melting pot and that mix of cultures is evident throughout the country. And despite the heavy influence of its neighbors, Slovak people are very welcoming of outsiders and are always curious to learn about other cultures and open to talk about their own culture.
Slovakia is comprised of mainly mountains and forested valleys, all located within close proximity of another. Climbing enthusiasts flock to the High Tatras mountains in the summer, spring and fall months while snow enthusiasts visit during the winter months for spectacular skiing. Slovakia is also home to numerous castles, including the most famous castle, Bratislava Castle, situated on the banks of the Danube River.
