Traveling in Slovakia
Maybe of all the countries I have ever visited in Europe, Slovakia was the one that I knew the least about before I arrived. My experiences here are still only limited to the capital of Bratislava, but that alone was enough to impress me! I most definitely had a great time in Bratislava, and I really look forward to returning and seeing more of the country. I’m thinking if I’m here during the winter time to go after their tallest peak. While not high in altitude, during the winter it supposedly is a true alpine challenge and an excellent mini adventure.
With less than half a million people, Bratislava is Slovakia’s largest country and capital. When measured per capita, it has one of the strongest economies in Europe. The sprawling city center is filled with medieval history and architecture. The two most famous landmarks in the city are the Bratislava castle, and St Michael’s Gate.
