Slovakia Vacation & Tour Packages

Once part of Czechoslovakia and still on good terms with their Czech cousins since the Velvet Divorce of 1992, Slovakia refers to itself as the "Little Big Country." With a population of just 5.5 million, it's not hard to understand the "little" part. But what's the "big" part? In a word: nature. Always less developed than the Czech lands, Slovakia is much more mountainous than Poland and Hungary, with a wealth of ski resorts in the various mountain ranges. These are part of the Carpathian Mountains that cover much of the north of the country. From mountains to cities, visiting Slovakia is all about doing what you want.

Bratislava as the perfect alternative to Vienna

The capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, sits on the Danube, less than an hour by road or rail from Vienna. Much smaller than both Vienna or Prague and lacking a little in grandeur, Bratislava still has highlights. They sit within a compact area on the north bank of the river. Bratislava makes for a good alternative to Vienna. You can break up the journey between Prague and Budapest with an overnight stop here. But don't think of it just as a place to lay your head. There's plenty to see, as a city tour will show you. Combine this with a trip out to Devin castle on the border with Austria. Visiting Slovakia is always well worth it.

The natural beauty of the High Tatras

The High Tatras are an altogether different proposition. We have included them in our destinations to provide variety to the usual city destinations in Central Europe. Looking to stretch your legs, de-stress, pamper yourself and get some serious hiking in all at the same time? Then a one or two night stay in one of the luxury hotels we've picked are perfect. You'll have elegant spa areas, lake or mountain views from your window and clean fresh air. It's a little over half-way by road between Budapest and Krakow. That means it's best reached by private transfer. This isn't a stop for everyone, but it provides an opportunity that's not to be missed.

An affordable vacation

Like neighboring Austria, Slovakia is in the Eurozone, but you will find prices here lower than in Austria. It's surrounded on three sides by other Schengen Area nations, so travel through Slovakia is hassle-free. Accommodation in Slovakia is pleasantly varied and affordable.
