As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Slovakia in a way like no other. With the astonishing Tatra Mountains in the north and the dreamy Danube River in the south, it’s easy to get lost in Slovakia’s unspoiled countryside. A land of mountains and medieval castles, Slovakia effortlessly swings between wondrous nature and resplendent architecture. The thriving capital of Bratislava delivers a tapestry of history, with a Gothic Old Town, Renaissance castles, ornate Baroque palaces and steely Soviet architecture.The country is surrounded by six other countries in Eastern Europe, and it’s been just over a quarter-century since the ‘Velvet Divorce’ of Czechoslovakia, yet Slovakia remains steeped in folk traditions. Their proudly preserved crafts are reflected in the country’s wooden churches and brightly painted houses, and you can tour museums filled with traditional art, literature and music. When you visit Slovakia with Trafalgar, we’ll take you cruising along the dreamy Danube, past the pastel-coloured 18th century buildings of the Old Town, to savouring local delicacies in the Old Market Hall of Bratislava. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
