During the Highlights of Slovakia tour you have a chance to get an inside glimpse into Slovakia’s most stunning locations. No tour of Slovakia would be complete without a visit to Bratislava – the only capital city in the world bordering two independent countries! Bearing the scars of turbulent 20th century, Bratislava offers a unique combination of architecture – medieval old town with churches, cathedral and narrow cobbled streets in contrast with majestic buildings in style of socialist realism. We will not skip any major highlight of this beautiful city.

We will guide you through two amazing sites listed in the World UNESCO Heritage. First, we visit the completely preserved medieval town of Banská Štiavnica. During the underground excursion in the mines we experience the history of gold and silver mining. Afterwards we explore the wooden church in Hronsek. Another highlight during the tour is the city of Banská Bystrica – the centre of Slovak National Uprising during the WWII. Don‘t forget to take photos when walking around the amazing collection of tanks, guns and uniforms in the museum of WWII. The last stop is the oldest town of Slovakia – Nitra. Here we enjoy the views from the Nitra castle and see the history of the place where the first Christian church in the Central Europe was built.

Highlights of Slovakia tour lets you savour the very best of the hidden heart of Europe. All this is yours on your unforgettable journey with us.

DAY 1

Bratislava

We will wait for you at your desired meeting location (airport, train station, bus station, hotel) in Vienna, Bratislava or Budapest with a welcome drink and will bring you safely to the historical centre of the capital city of Slovakia – Bratislava, where your hotel is located. Leave your baggage in the hotel room and walk with us in the streets of this beautiful city at your own pace – there’s plenty to explore!

The most iconic of all Bratislava’s highlights is undoubtedly the Bratislava Castle. Perched on a hill right above the Danube river, the castle dating from 9th century offers splendid views over the historical centre. We continue our stroll in the former Jewish quarter, talk about the communist regime when admiring the UFO bridge and visit the St. Martin’s Cathedral, Bratislava’s largest church, which dominates the skyline of the old town. Wandering the cobbled streets you will not miss the Slovak National Theatre, St. Michael’s Gate, Old Town Hall, Presidential Palace and a number of unusual and bizarre statues that make you smile.

Enjoy your evening as you wish. Go for a drink in one of Bratislava’s famous pubs and fall in love with our tasty Slovak beer. You will not believe your eyes how cheap it is!
