Lost In Nature: Slovakia

We’re not sure what Slovakia is the most famous for. Whether it’s famous at all. But one thing we are sure is that it should be. And what we love the most about it is: its national parks! Whether we want to get lost in wild mountain landscapes, picturesque canyons, evergreen pine forests, rocky plateaus or pretty caves, Slovakia offers wonderful choices.

Like the wild peaks of the High Tatras.

Nature has a million faces. Especially in the mountains where flora changes with altitude and weather also changes quickly and dramatically in any season. Mountains are whimsical and beautiful places. And despite of its small size, Slovakia has no shortage of them. These are the landscapes that we know so well, but never well enough. And love so much, but even more each time we return.
