Why not let yourself be tempted by a trip to Slovakia? The nature is amazing, the cities are beautiful, the activities are plentiful, and the people are very friendly! Bratislava's pedestrian streets, dotted with tree-lined squares, beautiful churches, and baroque or rococo palaces, where the city's main museums are located, are very pleasant to stroll through. The emblematic Bratislava Castle was the seat of the Hungarian kingdom, and today houses the Historical Museum and its famous Venus of Moravany, as well as the Music Museum. One of the most curious figures, which attracts hundreds of tourists, is the sculpture "The Peeping Tom" that looks out from a sewer. In addition, in this city, you will see bridges over the Danube, brightly colored Soviet buildings, and statues everywhere. More than 40% of the country's area is covered with forests, and walking through them is a widespread pastime in Slovakia. There are different routes that lead to castle ruins or archaeological sites or simply to places with beautiful views of nature. It is a country of majestic peaks and fertile valleys, large rivers, and small streams. Slovakia is a country of cheese. The best-selling cheese is a smoked cheese that is presented in the form of a ribbon and rolled up on itself. The Slovak national food is Halusky Bryndzové, dumplings made with potato dough, to which fried bacon is added, which makes it especially tasty. The traditional drink to accompany the meal is sour milk or buttermilk. Although many may prefer one of the Slovak beers such as Zloty Bazant, Mnich Smadny, or Topvar. The country also has at least 23,000 vineyards, where white wine grapes predominate. There is really a lot to discover in these wine regions framed by the Danube.
