Sleeping Beauty

Since separating from the Czech Republic in 1993 during the “Velvet Divorce,” Slovakia is a beautiful mountainous country with a fairy-tale feel. Graced with seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including ice caves, castles, and the medieval silver mining town of Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia is famed for its ski resorts in the High Tatras as well as its friendly and energetic inhabitants. Whether walking down old cobbled streets or hiking through the otherworldly landscape, you’ll feel as if you’re in a dream.

Why travel to Slovakia with MIR

Travelers frequently praise us for our inspired itineraries that take them deeper into the culture and communities of the places we visit. Long before gaining independence in 1993, MIR has been traveling through Slovakia and the surrounding region, driving the winding roads of the High Tatras, sipping slivovica (plum brandy) in the cafes and nightclubs of Bratislava, and searching for treasures in the remote villages. Come along with us, and discover this beautiful country for yourself.

Traveler Reviews

  • "MIR’s plans for us were excellent. [My favorite part] was Kosice with the tour guide who found a family with my grandmother’s maiden name. We had a wonderful visit with them!"
