Slovakia offers its guests excellent options for a rich and memorable vacation. Medieval castles and fortresses - for those who want to plunge into history; thermal springs and healing mud - for those who want to gain strength and improve their health in comfortable boarding houses; and the ski resorts are ideal for those who like extreme sports and want to spend a few days, or maybe weeks in the midst of breathtaking mountain scenery. For the convenience of moving around the country, we advise you to rent a car that will allow you to combine several leisure options and save you from the hassle associated with traveling by public transport.
