Long time no see!
This is a post that should have been published ages ago but you have no idea how difficult it is to wrap up two months worth of incredible experiences in a single post. But without further ado, let me show you my top 5 favourite places that you must visit if you find yourself in Slovakia.
I put the second-biggest Slovak city at the top of my list, just because I’ve spend most of my summer there. It is the place that I couldn’t stand at first but slowly grew to somehow at least tolerate.
Its Hlavna street is magical for a walk any time of the day, there are so many cute restaurants and coffee shops hiding behind every corner, and the people you will meet there will truly change your life.
I’m thinking of dedicating a whole post about Kosice, so let me know if you have any questions about my experience there that you’d like me to answer ^^.
Now, moving on to the capital of Slovakia, that I had the pleasure to visit for a weekend. If I have to be honest, I kind of liked Bratislava more than Kosice, and if you have only a weekend and the choice of vising only one Slovak city – that should be it. It’s colorful and vibrant and it’s impossible not to fall in love with it.
Another perk – Bratislava is only half an hour away from Vienna, so if you are thinking of a day trip to another major city – it’s right under your nose.
3. Vysoké Tatry
That must be the most magnificent spot with literally a breath-taking view. I simply cannot begin to describe its beauty, it’s something you have to see with your own eyes. If you are into hiking, there isn’t something I’d recommend more for you.
4. Slovenski raj
Raj means Paradise and I can see why this place is called this way. Slovenski ray offers more of a chilled walk in the nature, full with exciting ladders, hidden water streams, and if lucky – some wild creatures.
5. Liptovská Mara
And last, but perhaps my most favourite of all places, that’s the Liptovská Mara. As I missed my dear sea so much, I had to think of an alternative for the summer heat. This water reservoir is surrounded by mountains, but you can still relax at the coast.
There is also a water park and a kontakt zoo (where you can pet baby lions and bears, and yes I did pet them) only 10 minutes away, which means plenty of fun activities for everyone.
Have you ever visited any of those places, and if not – which one sounds most interesting to you?
Thank you for reading,
