Slovakia Travel Guide

We traveled to Slovakia to hike in the High Tatras, the highest range in the Carpathian Mountains.

Though our time in Slovakia was short, we left with the overwhelming feeling that Slovaks are genuinely welcoming and flexible hosts. Everything felt easy, efficient, and uncomplicated. We look forward to returning someday.
