Slovakia - Country Guide
Slovakia remains one of the most rural countries in Europe. It's a sparsely populated land of mountains and forests, sandwiched between the flat plains of Hungary and Poland.
Slovakia is a true outdoor country - the clean air and clear blue skies make the mountain regions of the High Tatra and Mala Fatra a haven for seekers of outdoor adventure. Ancient castles and medieval towns, virtually unchanged in hundreds of years, and dot the landscape and there are plenty of caves to explore too.
Slovakia is very much tied to tradition - folk traditions abound and the Roma people still live in a very traditional way.
