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 several 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. Probably the most beautiful UNESCO site in Slovakia are Spiš Castleand nearby medieval town of Levoča with the tallest wooden altar in the world. You will then try one of the best folk attractions of Slovakia – rafting on traditional wooden rafts of lumberjacks in the National Park of Pieniny.

Another highlight of the tour is the city of Banská Bystrica – the center 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. As we will move to the east of the country you will fall in love with the Orava Castle, the mysterious castle, where the world-famous movie Nosferatu – Symphony of Horror, depicting the story of Dracula, was shot.

Eastern Slovakia is famous for a number of unique wooden churches. We will not miss the beautiful wooden structures in Hervartov (UNESCO), Lukov-Venecia and Krive. They are all located close to the town of Bardejov, which is also honored to be protected by UNESCO.

We also travel to the National Park of Low Tatras to visit Demänovska Cave of Liberty, the most beautiful cave in Slovakia. Not far away from there is an intact typical Slovak village of Vlkolinec, another jewel in the UNESCO List. Slovakia’s got famous for the high mountains called the High Tatras. We make a stop in Štrbské Pleso, the highest located mountain settlement in Slovakia and take a walk around the glacial lake.

On our way back to the Western Slovakia we visit Nitra and Sered, two towns where history was written. Nitra is the oldest town in Slovakia and a place where the first Christian church in the Central Europe was built. Sered is the home of the only remaining concentration camp from the WWII in Slovakia.

We leave Bratislava and drive to Banská Štiavnica – a completely preserved medieval town. Thanks to the characteristic architecture and a rich mining history typical for this region, the town of Banská Štiavnica has been included in UNESCO World Heritage list.

We take a walk around the Trinity square, visit the Gothic church of St. Catherine from the late 15th century or the Town Hall before we taste the real jewel of Slovak beers in a local brewery. Here you will be served many different varieties of beer with long tradition – Lager, Weizen, Special Dark or Beer distillate – all made with special care.

After lunch, we will visit the open-air mining museum, where we pick up helmets, cloaks, and lamps and enter the underground excursion in mines. Dressed up as real miners we will descend to one of its pits dated from the 17th century.

Our tour continues to the village of Hronsek, where a beautiful wooden church inscribed to UNESCO World Heritage List is located.

We finish the day in the city of Banská Bystrica. This city is surrounded by two beautiful mountain ranges, Great Fatra and Low Tatras. We will explore the historical center with its fantastic renaissance appearance and enjoy the meal in a local restaurant.


Orava Castle, Vlkolínec (UNESCO) & Ždiar

Do you remember Max Schreck in a role of Dracula (Count Orloy) welcoming his guest on an old abandoned castle with a nightmare-like atmosphere in a world-famous movie Nosferatu Symphony of Horror? Well, we are going to visit that castle! The Orava Castle. But no worries! It has nothing in common with a dark atmosphere of its movie role, but it offers breathtaking views on the region and nearby located White Tatras! Orava Castle, also called eagle nest because of its position on the top of the cliff, was owned by many aristocrats, county heads and noblemen, protecting important road to Poland and serving as an administrative and military center for the region. Take some pictures from the citadel on the top of the castle hill, your friends will not believe their eyes how huge this castle is!

We continue our tour to a typical Slovak village called Vlkolínec. It is a remarkably intact settlement of 45 buildings with the traditional features of a Slovak village located in the mountains. Vlkolinec was included in UNESCO World Heritage list in 1993 as being the best preserved and most comprehensive unit of its kind in the whole region. You will have a chance to hear stories about our crazy Slovak traditions.

We spend this night in Ždiar, a tiny and picturesque village, which is perfectly located in The National Park of High Tatras. You will be surrounded by the lofty peaks and marvelous wooden architecture typical of this beautiful mountain village.


Spiš Castle (UNESCO), The medieval town of Levoča (UNESCO) & Rafting on traditional wooden rafts in Pieniny

Today we drive east to visit the biggest medieval castle in the Central Europe – Spiš Castle. Keep your eyes open while the road leads us through the beautiful scenery of the High Tatras, the mountains we are proud of. As the Greeks have their Olympus and the Japanese their Fuji, the Slovaks also have their holy mountain – Kriváň – the peak in a shape you recognize instantly. In a few minutes, you will be overwhelmed by the incredible size of Spiš Castle. It has become the number one Slovak location for movies set in medieval times, such as The Last Legion and Dragonheart. Thanks to its turbulent history and fascinating architecture, it’s no wonder the castle was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993.

Just a few minutes from Spiš Castle is a town of Levoča. In medieval times, the town of Levoča belonged to the prominent European towns. It is still almost completely surrounded by medieval walls and the town is included in the UNESCO List in its entirety. The St. James church is a home of the highest wooden altar in the world. It was built of lime wood without the use of a single iron nail.

After a short drive to the village of Červený Kláštor, we hop on wooden rafts and drift down the river surrounded by the peaks of Pieniny mountains. The tour on the raft is 14 km long and takes around 2 hours. Once you get into the raft you get welcomed by the tour guide who will direct the raft and also explain and describe what you see. These guys are locals who have rafting in their genes. They all wear old local clothes and black hats decorated with little white shells. The shells have special meaning, every shell stands for one voyage to the north and to the see. Raftsmen dressed in traditional goral costumes talk during a raft ride about local history, rare fauna and flora, as well as legends and tales connected with surrounding rocks.


Bardejov (UNESCO), Wooden churches in Hervartov (UNESCO), Krive & Lukov

Today we explore the area around the town of Bardejov. Bardejov is a small town but with exceptionally complete and well-preserved fortified medieval center included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. We visit the majestic gothic basilica of St. Egidius (UNESCO), the Renaissance City Hall with late-gothic artistic and architectural details included in the UNESCO World Heritage List and a Jewish quarter around a fine 18th-century synagogue.

Each part of Slovakia has hidden jewels, which are characteristic for that area and are incomparable with others. Wooden churches and belfries are such jewels of Eastern Slovakia, as they are unique and typical especially for this territory. During our trip today we visit wooden churches in Hervartov (UNESCO), Lukov and Krive.

The churches were built between the 16th and 18th centuries. The most of them are located in small isolated villages. Wood is the main construction material. The wooden churches represent traditional construction techniques. Interiors of the churches are decorated with wall and ceiling paintings and works of art that enrich the cultural significance of the properties.


The High Tatras, Demänovska Cave of Liberty & Nitra

After breakfast, we drive to Štrbské Pleso, the highest located mountain settlement in the High Tatras. Here you are free to explore – walk around the Štrbské Pleso lake, hire a boat, visit Lakes of Love, take a chair lift to the upper parts of the mountains or drink a coffee in restaurants and cafés with panoramic views.

Afterwards, we travel to the National Park of Low Tatras to visit the unique Demänovská Cave of Liberty. Don’t forget to take some warm clothes because the average temperature in the cave is close to only 7 °C. Thanks to its spectacular dripstone decorations this cave belongs to the most beautiful caves in Europe. A rich complex of stalactites and stalagmites together with little karst lakes creates an ideal environment for bats. Be patient, you will perhaps spot one of them hanging upside down!

It’s time to return back to the Western Slovakia. We make a stop in the oldest town in Slovakia – Nitra. Explore thousands of years of history. Have you heard about the oldest church in Slovakia? Do you know the legend of Corgoň? Listen to the stories of famous people who visited Nitra and enjoy the stunning views over the city from the Nitra castle. A visit to the cathedral on the top of the castle hill provides an opportunity to step back in time and gain an insight into its history of people who have worshipped here over the centuries and treasures you can still find there.


Museum of Holocaust in Sereď

Not many people in the world know that Slovakia was also a location of three concentration camps during the WWII. Today we visit the only remaining one in Sered. This museum of holocaust charts the dark history of Jewish transports from Slovakia during the WWII. It is one of the best museums for history lovers to be found in our lovely country.

Our Highlights of Slovakia tour ends at your desired drop-off point (airport, station, hotel) in Bratislava, Vienna or Budapest. Enjoy your return home with great memories from your journey in Slovakia!
