Covered with dense forest and rugged mountains, it’s perfect for adventurous travellers looking for a place to take in nature's beauty. Slovakia is home to 2500m-plus peaks with woodsy gorges to explore and picturesque waterfalls to take in.
Spread over both banks of the Danube River, Bratislava is characterised by medieval towers and grandiose 20th-century buildings and is ideal for travellers looking to explore the recent past.
By landing in Budapest, you'll realise one thing pretty quickly: while the city is a truly incredible holiday destination in itself, you have countless other options to explore around this country, where natural and manmade wonders are spread from east to west.
