Slovakia Calendar

The once inseparable twin of the Czech republic, Slovakia brims with medieval castles, dense forests, and ancient wooden churches that were not held in place by nails. The country is compact but not dense with traffic; nature still prevails. Bratislava, the country’s capital, is a far cry from other capital cities like Prague or Budapest, but it is gushing with development and all attendant entertainment like riverside dining and café-hopping.
