From medieval cities and folk traditions to dramatic mountain ranges and lush forests, a hotel break in Slovakia is a romantic journey back in time.
Situated in the heart of Central Europe, Slovakia offers plenty of attractions for nature lovers and culture buffs alike. Whether it’s the dramatic peaks and beautiful mountain lakes of the High Tatras, the stunning karst caves of the Low Tatras, or the lush forests of the Little Carpathians, there are countless natural wonders to be discovered on a hotel break in Slovakia, as well as an excellent infrastructure for activities such as hiking, biking, climbing and skiing. Folk traditions are still alive and well in Slovakia, which offers visitors the chance to learn about traditional ways of life, local history and folklore in numerous Skanzens - historic open-air museum villages - which are scattered across the country, for example at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Vlkolinec. And no Slovakian hotel break would be complete without a visit to the country’s vibrant capital, Bratislava, where guests can wander the cobbled streets of the Old Town, visit charming churches and admire sights such as the iconic Bratislava Castle, before relaxing in one of the city’s many lively cafés. To the east, the lovely medieval city of Košice is home to St. Catherine’s, Europe’s easternmost gothic Cathedral, as well as a thriving arts scene that saw it declared a European Capital of Culture in 2013.
