At The Centre Of Europe A full member of the European Union since 1st May, 2004, and a state in its own right since its velvet divorce from the Czech Republic in 1993, Slovakia sits at the very heart of Europe where West meets East. Bordering Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and the Ukraine, this small mountainous country is home to around five and a half million people. The predominantly Catholic Slovaks are famously hospitable, prepared to go out of their way to welcome you. Blessed with a continental European climate – cool winters (-10°C to -15°C in January) and warm summers (32°C in July) – Slovakia is a modern democracy with deep rural, mining traditions and a rich cultural history, Slovakia's tourism and leisure sector is developing rapidly. Much of the tourist infrastructure is on a par with that in Western Europe although there's a refreshing absence of the McDonald's-style commercialism that seems so rampant elsewhere. In Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia, located to the South West of the country, there is a real buzz. Steeped in elegant buildings, cathedrals and fine restaurants, it is a bustling cosmopolitan city where the extremely favourable exchange rate helps your money go a long way.
But it is out among the dramatic countryside where the country comes to life for the independent-minded traveller.
Among 170 castles and chateaux, you'll find the biggest medieval castle (Spis), the oldest glacial cave (Dobsinska) and the biggest river island (Zitny) in Europe. Step into St. Jacobs church in Levoca and you'll see the biggest wooden altar in the world standing some 18.6 metres tall. A visit to the Caves of the Slovak and Aggetelek Karst will see you step onto the soil of one of the World's most important natural heritage sites.
Poprad, close to the Polish border, to the North East of Slovakia, is home to AquaCity. Located at the foot of the High Tatras, a magnificent European mountain range second only to the Alps in elevation, it is a bustling administrative, economic and cultural centre dating back to the 13th Century. Modern bars and restaurants compete for attention with museums, early gothic churches and wall paintings from the 15th Century. It is a town filled with stunning architecture, set against a truly awesome backdrop.
With a wealth of spectacular scenery, fairytale castles and historical monuments nearby and now, thanks to AquaCity, the ultimate in luxury hotel, spa, conference and sporting facilities, Slovakia and Poprad are beautiful and increasingly popular destinations to explore.
