Slovakia Tourist Attractions


Tourist attractions of Slovakia are many. As you visit the city you will see many eye-catching areas which fall under Slovakia tourist attraction. Following are some of the Slovakia tourist attraction.

» Bratislava:

Bratislava   is Slovakia's largest city and has been the capital since 1969.   The Austrian border is almost within sight of the city and Hungary is just 16km away. Many beautiful monuments are there in the old town. Some of the Tourist attractions of slovakia are as follows.

» Tatras Mountains
After Bratislava, the country's main attraction is the Tatras Mountains;   a train ride there will take at least 8 hours with 1 connection.  The district is compact, about 20 miles from end to end, containing 35 mountain lakes with clear but very cold waters. The gateway to the Tatras is the city of Poprad, located 204 miles east of Bratislava. The town is a bit of a Soviet-era architectural horror, but there's beauty at its doorstep.

» Spissky hrad
Spissky hrad   is the largest castle in Slovakia. The castle was founded in 1209, wrecked by the Tatars in the 13th century and reconstructed in the 15th century. Although the castle burnt down in 1780, the ruins and the site are spectacular. The highest enclosure contains a round Gothic tower, and  a cistern.  Instruments of torture are exhibited in the dungeon that falls in to one of the Slovakia tourist attractions.

» Dunajec Gorge
Pieniny National Park combines with a similar park in Poland to protect the 9km Dunajec River gorge between the Slovak village of Cerveny Klástor and Szczawnica, Poland. The river there makes the international boundary between the two countries. 

» Trnava
Trnava is Slovakia's oldest town, the first to get a royal charter as a free borough (from Hungarian King Béla IV in 1238). Though badly marred by modern development, its handsome walled old town, a legacy of almost three centuries as Hungary's religious centre, was spruced up for the town's 750th birthday in 1988. 

» Slovak Karst
This region of limestone canyons and caves is at the eastern end of the Slovak Red Mountains, a major range that reaches to the border with Hungary. The spectacular landscape includes Domica Cave, said to be one of the biggest in the world. It's a beautiful cave, full of colour and with some stalactites as thick as tree trunks.

» Old Town
Historic neighborhood filled with charming narrow lanes, burgher's houses and nobles' palaces in addition to many of the city's important buildings such as the former Palace of the Hungarian Estates, the late-Gothic building of the Academia Istropolitana

» Primaciálny Palác
Another  thing awaiting you is Primaciálny Palác or Primates' Palace, Primaciále Nam, 1 Starý Mesto, a pale pink baroque palace celebrated for its Hall of Mirrors where the peace treaty of Pressburg was signed in 1805 by Napoleon and Franz I, the Austrian emperor.
