Holiday in Slovakia
While in the capital, you can discover fascinating sights at every step. We recommend you to start your tour at Bratislava’s UFO. The view from 83 meters is incredible. You’ll have the entire city in the palm of your hand. If you’re lucky and the weather is nice, you’ll be able to see 20 kilometres into the distance in every direction. This convenient vantage point makes it easy to choose your next destination.
This village in the northern Slovakia is the birthplace of Juraj Jánošík, the most famous of Slovak outlaws. It’s the right place to enjoy a plateful of original “halušky”, views over the village or go hiking in the mountains of Malá Fatra.
“The Metropolis of the East” bears the title of the European Capital of Culture 2013. The tour of the city is concluded at the singing fountain – a popular photo spot for couples. It can even play your favourite song!
