Your own private Bohemia
Like Hungary and the Czech Republic, Slovakia positively bursts with Old World Bohemian charm. But unlike its neighbours, it's not overrun – depending on where your adventures take you, you may just be the only visitors around for miles. That's perhaps the most amazing thing about Slovakia; it's got the charming castles, cozy hillside villages, rolling hills, and intriguing history of a major European destination, but with almost none of the tourist traffic you'll find elsewhere. Wherever you roam out here, expect only the warmest of welcomes.
