Voyages Jules Verne

Visit Slovakia

Slovakia is a country rich in cultural and political history. Land-locked but dotted with lakes and natural springs, this entrancing country has held on to its folklore traditions, which add further wonder to its many fairy-tale castles, dramatic fortresses and ancient ruins.

The landscape is wild and raw, ranging from rolling countryside and dense, absorbing forests to craggy outcrops and the breath-taking peaks of the Tatra Mountains that stand proudly, watching over the enchanting villages below.

The compact capital, Bratislava, situated in the far west of Slovakia and bisected by the Danube River, gives visitors the chance to explore the authentic Old Town’s rabbit-warren of historic streets and lose themselves in the world of the Slovak people. You’ll discover Baroque architecture, an abundance of palaces, churches and quirky museums, and a huge selection of cafés inviting you in with open arms. And this can be done at the careful, slower pace that welcoming residents of this overlooked yet enchanting city are so fortunate to enjoy.
