Central Europe - Slovakia (Chapter)
This is the Slovakia chapter from Lonely Planet's Central Europe guidebook.
Slovakia’s small size is possibly its biggest attraction. Dinky capital Bratislava is awash with quirky museums and backed by thick forests. Don’t leave without heading east, to where fortresses tower over tradition-rich medieval towns such as Levoca or Bardejov and hiking trails lace the hills.
- hike between mountain huts in one of Europe’s smallest alpine mountain ranges, the High Tatras
- linger over drinks at one of myriad sidewalk or riverfront cafes in Old Town Bratislava
- wander the ruins of Spiš Castle, among the biggest in Europe
- restaurants & accommodation
