In this tour we combined the most amusing and interesting places and sites that we have in Slovakia. The sites are scattered all over the country and to see all of them, we need to travel from the west to the east and back. Fortunately, the small size of Slovakia makes it possible to visit all these sites in couple of days.
During the tour you will visit the most beautiful and interesting places of Slovakia. You are NOT going to miss the Old town of the capital city – Bratislava, several Slovak UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the biggest castle of Slovakia – the Spiš castle, the medieval towns Levoča and Banska Štiavnica or well preserved traditional village – Vlkolínec.
One day is also dedicated to nature. When you are visiting Slovakia, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit the most stunning mountains – the High Tatras. Depending on your wishes and weather, we will make up the right program for you in the mountains.
This trip is intended for small groups of at least 4 participants, with private departures. Just choose your desired date of the tour, pay 25% deposit and we will contact you with confirmation. It also possible to make the tour longer. In this case, please contact us for a quote.

BRATISLAVA AND BANSKA STIAVNICA
We will meet and start the day in the capital city – Bratislava. After guided walking tour through the most beautiful part – the Old Town, we will set off to the first UNESCO site on our tour – a small medieval town. I´m talking about Banská Štiavnica. Once it was a very rich town due to its mining history and was built in beautiful location. Today you´ll learn something about it.
After a lunch break and walk through the town, we will drive further to the town Banska Bystrica, where you are going to spend the night.
Another colorful UNESCO site today. Colorful? Yes, the traditional village Vlkolínec is full of old houses painted with various colors. Besides, it´s the best preserved village within the Carpathian Arch.
In the afternoon we will visit probably the best preserved castle of Slovakia – The Orava castle, built above the river on a massive rocky cliff.
On the way to the High Tatras, we will make a short stop by a wooden church, which is one of the biggest in the Central Europe.
HIGH TATRAS DAY
Today you will have a chance to explore the High Tatras, the most famous mountains of Slovakia. We will take you for a walk around the famous Štrbske lake and ascend to the mountains with a cable car, to show you some magnificent views.
Of course your wishes will be taken into consideration and the program may be adjusted.
Today we are going to visit places, which are all listed in UNESCO. At first we will visit the biggest medieval castle of Slovakia. You will realize how big it actually is, when we walk up higher to the watch tower and you will have the best view at the whole complex.
We will also visit a medieval town Levoča (part of UNESCO as well), which was home to a famous woodcarver – Master Paul. Master Paul carved a wooden altar, which you can see in the St. Jacob Church. The wooden altar is the tallest of its kind in the world.
