View a Map of Slovakia

Slovakia formally and still officially the Slovak Republic, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is surrounded by Austria to the west, Czech Republic to the northwest, Hungary to the south, Poland to the north and Ukraine to the east.

With numerous medieval gothic and baroque towns, nine national parks, plenty of caves, well preserved folk architecture and traditions, lively and cosmopolitan capital city and probably the highest number of castles and chateaux per capita in the world, there's something for every traveler to enjoy in Slovakia.

Much of the central and northern part of Slovakia is rugged and mountainous. The Tatra Mountains in the north, shared with Poland, are interspersed with many scenic lakes and valleys. The lowlands are in the south with the lowest point of the Bodrog River being 94 m above sea level.

Slovakia is also a country of massive medieval castles built on the rocks, beautiful detailed ones located on plains (there is about 180 castles and ruins) as well as country of caves. Only a small number of the over 3000 caves (12) is open to the public, however. These mostly consist of traditional karst caves, but there's also an ice cave, and one of the world's few aragonite cave open to the public.
