Culture and sights

The Slovak capital Bratislava is a vibrant town where Mária Theresa was crowned. Experience the coronation festivities in the city during the summer or be attracted by the high art of the Slovak National Gallery, traditions, crafts and the work of old masters. Admire the wooden craft combined with technical ingenuity in the Prešov salt mine and visit the UNESCO-listed wooden churches built without a single nail. Wandering through the countryside, discover almost 180 castles, the Jewish Heritage Route, the exceptional architecture of cities from the Gothic and Renaissance periods, but also functionalism from the Iron Curtain period and before it. Be charmed by the gold and silver mining towns, the huge viaduct in Telgárt and the unique water mills on the branches of the Danube.
