This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the cultural and scenic highlights of Slovakia on a week-long city and mountain adventure.
Enjoy the best of both worlds by wandering the cobbled streets of Bratislava’s old town, and then heading up into the High Tatra mountains to walk amidst scenic lakes and traditional huts.
You’ll start your self-guided journey in Bratislava. Soak up the relaxed atmosphere of Slovakia’s capital with a stroll along the Danube, and get your culture fix with a visit to the Museum of History at Bratislava Castle, and the 18th Century pink and white Primate’s Palace.
Jump on the train and head for the hills to spend three full days exploring the High Tatras. Your first adventure takes you by cable car to the top of Slovakia’s second highest peak, Lomnicky (2634m), for panoramic views, before a scenic walk to waterfalls, Strbske Pleso Lake and the mountains’ oldest hut.
Two UNESCO World Heritage Sites are next on the list; visit spectacular Spissky Castle and the medieval town of Levoca.
All of this comes at your own pace – a self-guided trip means you’re your own boss. We provide detailed descriptions of the activities, plus maps, so you can spend as much time in each place as you fancy.
Escape the work hullaballoo and join us for a tasty pastry at one of Bratislava’s charming cafes and endless fresh air in the midst of the High Tatra Mountains – what better way to spend your time?!
