Slovakia is a country that is frequently overlooked and often misunderstood. Historically, it was known as Upper Hungary and all the Hungarian royalty were crowned in Bratislava, the current Slovak capital. Slovakia spent most of the 20th Century as half of Czechoslovakia, part of the Communist Bloc. Since gaining independence in 1993, it has been frequently overlooked in favor of neighboring Hungary and the Czech Republic as a popular travel destination.

These days, visitors are discovering Slovakia for the Central European gem that it truly is. A world class ski destination in the beautiful High Tatras Mountains (which also make for great hiking and trekking in the summer). It has a quirky capital in Bratislava that captures visitor’s imaginations with unusual sculptures. And the central and eastern parts of the country are dotted with important UNESCO World Heritage Sites and cultural sites. Slovakia may well be our favorite country in the world right now. Here are some of our favorites.
