All our Slovakia collections
Slovakia is right in the heart of Europe, and its colourful history is intertwined with that of its neighbours - especially the Czech Republic. And while many folk have been to the Czech Republic, not as many venture into Slovakia - even though it got the lion's share of beautiful, ancient castles and wild wildernesses when it came to breaking up Czechoslovakia. Since the split in 1993 Slovakia swiftly became one of the youngest members of the EU, and welcomed in a number of low-cost airlines. And some of the best places to stay in Slovakia offer some of the best value in Europe.
Slovakia's diminutive size should be seen as a positive rather than a negative, because within this small region you'll find:
Bratislava, the capital is also known for being small, and kind of quirky, with its Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture, numerous museums and very high ratio of cafes per resident. It's also known for being a great place to let your hair down. EU membership has pushed up the prices a bit, especially in Bratislava, but this is still an excellent European destination if you're looking for somewhere good value and a bit off the beaten track still.
Trendy hotel in the heart of the Old Town. Understated elegance throughout. Spacious rooms in muted tones and excellent service. A great choice for business or leisure. Close to tourist attractions and the financial district. Offers great value.
Boutique style pension house within walking distance of the Old Town and Grassalkovich Palace. Its range of contemporary accommodation - from spacious guest rooms to apartments with kitchenettes - make it an ideal spot for groups or families.
