Slovakia is one of the last of Central Europe's secrets to be discovered by travelers, and having joined the European Union in 2004, is now in a better position than ever to show what it has to offer. Impressively situated on the Danube, the capital, Bratislava, boasts stunningly restored baroque, rococo, and art nouveau buildings. Beyond the capital visitors will find a country packed with architectural gems, the renowned wooden churches of the Presov region, imposing fortresses, romantic castles, and medieval ruins--all within easy reach thanks to an excellent transportation system.
Features include:
*History and culture
*Detailed coverage of Bratislava
*Slovakia's art and architectural heritage, from restored buildings in Bratislava to historic castles, elegant chateaux, medieval towns and preserved folk villages
*Hiking, skiing, cycling, whitewater rafting, wine tasting, and more
