Slovak Republic | Slovenská Republika
The capital and largest city is Bratislava. It is an independent country after the fairly recent dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993 into the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic (now Czechia).
Slovakia may be small and have less to see in terms of quantity than its neighbors, but the sites within are well worth a trip. From the alpine ranges of the High Tatras to the ruins of one of the largest castles in Europe, the Spiš Castle, Slovakia will not disappoint.
The capital city of Bratislava uniquely combines communist-era architecture with modern day construction and design, a metaphor for the country as a whole. The city is filled with many lovely street cafes, and has its own beautiful castles, such as Devin Castle and Bratislava Castle.
