Slovakia

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Nestled between the Tatra-Fatra range of the Carpathian mountains and the Danube River, Slovakia is a gorgeous tiny country - a short hydrofoil ride away from both Prague and Vienna.

Originally the Principality of Nitra, it was absorbed into the Hapsburg Empire and then became a part of Czecheslovakia post World War I, and only gained complete independence after the fall of the Soviet regime.

Its capital, Bratislava, lies on the banks of the Danube River. Bratislava is a fairy-tale city with stunning architecture, as it was once the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary. The region actually starts of within the city itself making it an extremely picturesque setting. The thick Tatra forests form a natural boundary between Poland and Slovakia. A designated national park, the region is home to the Tatra Chamois, marmot, lynx and bears. Gerlach, the highest peak in the Tatras, falls into Slovakia.
