SLOVAK KARST

Discover uniqueness of Slovak Karst National Park which hides

many treasures in its territory. Explore its mysterious corners,

both above and below the earth!

VISITING

Slovak Karst National Park, Krásnohorská Cave (UNESCO),

Zádielska Tiesňava Gorge

SLOVAK KARST NATIONAL PARK

Slovak Karst National Park is the largest karst

area in Central Europe and is the second youngest

national park in Slovakia with an area of 346 km 2 .

It was declared a national park in 2002 and since

1973 this extremely valuable nature environment

with perfectly developed karst features has

been preserved and designated as a preserved

landscape area. There are 1,100 underground spaces

and the caves in the area of Slovak Karst were

included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1991

together with caves in the Hungarian territory.

KRÁSNOHORSKÁ CAVE

Krásnohorská Cave is a unique creation

of nature listed in the UNESCO World Heritage

List. It is designed for all adventurers

and adrenaline lovers. The cave is accessible

to the public only accompanied by experienced

leaders and with complete cave equipment.

It is dominated by the 34 metres high Rožňava

Cavemen Dripstone long considered to be

the largest in the world and recently included

in the Guinness Book of Records. The sightseeing

route of 450 metres is an extraordinary

experience during which you will become a real

caveman for a short while.

ZÁDIELSKA TIESŇAVA GORGE

The monumental karst gorge is the deepest

gorge in Slovakia. It is approximately 3.3 km long

and its limestone walls reach a relative height

of over 310 metres. The narrowest point of this

gorge, only 10 metres wide, was named the Zádiel

Gate. In the rugged gorge, there are remarkable

rocky, vertical walls and cliffs, which are colourful

in their shapes, bizarre and powerful. It was

created by aland-area brook called Blatnica

or Blatný potok brook. This stream creates

small waterfalls and cascades even today. Close

to Zádielska Tiesňava Gorge, there is the village

of Háj with a unique 15-metre high statue of

an angel, known from the Hollywood film Behind

the Enemy Line.

Dobšinská Ice Cave

WORLD UNIQUE SIGHTS

Fall in love with Slovak historical and nature treasures, whose

value has already been appreciated by the whole world!

VISITING

Dobšinská Ice Cave (UNESCO),

Ochtinská Aragonite Cave (UNESCO),

Betliar Mansion and the Slovak ”Taj Mahal“

DOBŠINSKÁ ICE CAVE

Dobšinská Ice Cave ranks among the largest nature

unique and beauty sites of Slovakia. It is one

of the largest accessible ice caves in the world,

which is further emphasized by its location outside

the Alpine region. Since 2000, it has been listed

in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Dobšinská Ice

Cave is also known for its abundant history, which

corresponds to the great public interest in this

unique cave since its discovery. It is one of the first

electrically lit caves in the world, and as early

as in 1878 a cultivated mountain park was built

on the access road to the cave.

OCHTINSKÁ ARAGONITE CAVE

Ochtinská Aragonite Cave is one of the European

rarities and is one of the few publicly accessible

aragonite caves in the world. Its interior is

decorated with enchanting needles hanging

from the ceiling. These are extremely thin sinter

snows (stalactite formations), which, by their

variety, seem to embody the infinite variability

of nature formations and thus evoke the idea

of stone rain. The most precious aragonite

formation in the cave is the so-called iron flower

appearing like coral. The cave prides itself by its

registration in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

COUNT DIONYSUS AND FRANCISCA

ANDRÁSSY MAUSOLEUM

The architecturally unique Art Nouveau

building built in 1904 called the “Slovak Taj Mahal“

is the final resting place of Count Dionysus

Andrassy and his wife Countess Francisca.

In 1903-1904, the Mausoleum was built by Count

Dionysus himself, the last male representative

of the Monock branch of the Andrassy family, after

the death of his wife, Francisca née Hablavcová,

as a sign of their inseparable love. The Mausoleum

is clearly one of the largest architectural gems

in this country and is located near the beautiful

Mansion of Krásna Hôrka, which until 2012, when

it burned out, had been open to the public.

BETLIAR MANSION

The Betliar Mansion is our most visited and also

the most beautiful castle in southeastern

Slovakia. Situated on the outskirts of the village

of Betliar, it is surrounded by a beautiful park

with rare trees, romantic buildings, and wildlife.

It is a truly luxurious mansion built to represent

its owners. Betliar was one of the manor houses,

which after 1945 avoided war looting, and so

its interior and family collections have been

preserved to this day. Everything in the manor

house belonged to the Andrassy family, whom we

consider to be the most important aristocrats

in Europe in the 19 th century.

Do you long for a true adventure and adrenaline?

For a breath-taking experience which you will never forget?

the brown bear. We will take you to a place from where

you may watch the king of Slovak mountains from a safe

distance in its natural environment.

Brown Bear

EXPERIENCING

An all-day trip to the valley in the Western Tatras,

watching the brown bear in its own territory without feeding it

WATCHING THE BROWN BEAR

The brown bear is our largest wild beast living

in the whole territory of Slovakia, with the largest

population in the High Tatras. The bear watching

takes place during spring and summer tourist

seasons, which is from June to October, but the most

beautiful time is spring itself, when the baby bears

born at the end of winter make their first trips out

of the den together with their mother. In spring, bears

are most active, as they need to catch up the weight

they lost during hybernation in the den.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRIP

This trip is not just about the brown bear, you will

see the game as Tatra Mountains Chamois, deer,

we will hear marmot and see the eagle fly. You will

get to know herbs and berries, and most importantly,

you will become familiar with the rules that

reign in the mountains and place great emphasis

on responsibility, respect, and consideration

for forest residents.

EXPERIENCING

Wine tasting, looking around the vineyard

VERITA WINES

Verita wines come from the northernmost vineyards

in Slovakia. The tradition of vine growing in this

region dates back to the 14 th century. The vineyards

are situated directly above the Laborec river,

at the southern foot of the Vihorlat Mountains

at an altitude of 250 metres.

CASTLE ABOVE THE VILLAGE OF VINNÉ

Viniansky hrad castle is a ruin of a Gothic castle

of the 13 th century near the village of Vinné.

The castle was probably built in the second half

of the 13 th century to protect the road that led

to Poland. Today the castle has partially preserved

Renaissance vaults, window and door openings

and parts of the original plaster. You can also see

cellars or traces of fireplaces.

BREKOV CASTLE

The Brekov Castle was built on a limestone hill

near the Laborec river. Originally, like the Castle

of Vinné, it had a protective function as it guarded

the north-south road through the valley. Today,

the castle is just a ruin, but various social

and cultural events take place there. The castle

is built on the andesite rock, which provides

a wonderful view of the surrounding area.

complexes in Central Europe with an unforgettable

gastronomic experience during which you will feel like

kings or queens themselves.

ONE-DAY SIGHTSEEING TRIP

Slovak Opal Mines

MEET THE TREASURE OF SLOVAKS

Slovakia may boast a number of leads. One of these includes

the fact that in the east of Slovakia, there are the largest opal

mines in the world. We will take you to their inside where the most

beautiful and precious opals come from. We will also introduce to you

the largest salt deposits and the only salt-mining technical museum

in Slovakia. Take a trip with us to discover new scientific knowledge!

VISITING

Slovak Opal Mines, Solivary, Slovak Technical Museum in Košice

SLOVAK OPAL MINES

The unique Slovak site - Slovak Opal Mines are the oldest

opal mines in the world. This is where Harlequin, Europe‘s

largest opal, comes from, now exhibited in the Vienna

Nature History Museum. The jewel of the Slovaks

with unique colouring was worn by many important

queens in their jewelery. After almost 100 years, the

mines are open to the public; you may take part in

an adventure hour circuit with guides who will offer

you a complete historical and geological explanation.

In addition to the rare opal, you will see mining tunnels,

halls, an extensive mineralogical collection of mining

tools and discover the ways in which the most beautiful

gems were mined by miners in the distant past.

SOLIVAR PRI PREŠOVE

In the third largest city in Slovakia - Prešov - you

of Slovakia with a number of preserved technical

monuments related to salt mining. As early as

in the Middle Ages, salt springs were rising here,

from which salt was extracted. In 1572, mining

began here. Flooding the mines with water turned

them into a huge underground lake, which in 1752

required the introduction of a new technology such

as pumping brine in leather mosses using a gaple,

a pump powered by horses or oxen.

SLOVAK TECHNICAL MUSEUM

IN KOŠICE

The Slovak Technical Museum as the only museum

of technical focus in the territory of Slovakia

provides a comprehensive view of the history of science

and technology. Being the main centre of museum

documentation, it manages an extensive collection fund,

initiates care for selected technical monuments in situ

throughout Slovakia, and provides expert assistance

in their preservation and restoration. It documents

the contribution of Slovakia and its personalities

to the development of world science and technology.

A number of original exhibits are presented in exhibits

and exhibited collections. To date, the Museum has

TWO-DAY EXPERIENCE STAY

Wine Cellar / Ostrožovič

WINE ROUTE

There is truth in wine... This is how one may summarize this unique trip, during

which you will not only get to know our smallest wine-growing region of Tokaj,

taste the wines from the best winemakers in unique areas of tuff cellars, but

also get to know Košice, the metropolis of eastern Slovakia. We will take you

to the most beautiful places and lookout towers from which you will have

a unique view of our region and individual destinations.

VISITING

City of Košice, Tokaj Wine-Growing Region,

East Slovak Wine-Growing Region

VINEYARDS OF TOKAJ

Tokaj is primarily the birthplace of the royal liquor,

but it hides a lot of the unknown. This unique place

is complemented not just by historical tufa cellars,

barrels full of wine, picturesque villages with an abundant

history, where the secrets of the past reveal

cultural and historical monuments, but it is also

unique by the hard and conscientious work of wine

growers, wine producers, and locals. Fairytale-like

walks through the vineyards and surrounding

countryside, traditional homemade food and pleasant

rural accommodation will enchant anyone who visits

this unique part of Slovakia.

ORECHOVÁ CELLAR

Orechová Cellar processes grapes from its own

vineyards grown on an area of 54 hectares.

The wine-growing lines belong to the East

Slovakian wine-growing region and are

planted on the south-western slopes of the Vihorlat

mountains. The Vihorlat mountain range was

formed at the end of the Tertiary as a result

of extensive volcanic activity. The rare volcanic

andesites are the geological basis of vineyards

in the wine-growing village of Orechová. Orechová

wine has a unique taste and is unique, thanks to its

geographical location and local climatic conditions.

KOŠICE

A unique Central European metropolis and the second

largest city in Slovakia. Košice is also the scene

of the oldest marathon in Europe and the second

oldest in the world. You will find the longest

pedestrian zone in Slovakia or the easternmost Gothic

cathedral in Europe, which is also the largest church

in Slovakia - St. Elizabeth Cathedral. A popular stop

is also in the Eastern Slovak Museum, where you will

discover the Košice Gold Treasure. A perfect view

of the whole city will be offered from the Lookout

Tower near the largest ZOO in Slovakia. Romantic

of 2 km. It is precisely thanks to the uniquely

preserved history that Levoča deserved to be

listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The pride

of the city is represented by the second largest

church in Slovakia - St. Jacob‘s Basilica, which

hides the highest late Gothic wooden altar

in the world in its interior by the legendary

woodcarver Master Paul.

of the Assumption of Virgin Mary with the highest

church tower in Slovakia (87 m). The church bells are

still a symbol of the town even though the history

BEŇATINA

In the village of Beňatina, in the district

of Sobrance, there is a beautiful and mysterious

nature monument - travertine of Beňatina.

Popular is the travertine wall, on which the whale

appears. There have been heated debates for years

on whether it is a fact or an eye fallacy. You can

make your own opinion if you decide to cool down

in this magical place. What is important, however,

is that the lake excels in clear water and is still

an unknown place for many.

forests, in the village of Ruská Bystrá, there is

the easternmost representative of all the Slovak

was built in 1730. It rises on a hill in the middle

of the village and stands out on a height amiidst

the village and is prominent in colour against a green

background of the surrounding huge trees. A unique

place of peace, where in the shadow of a slim church

surrounded by majestic nature, you will devote

yourself to meditation on the meaning of life.

CASTLE OF VINNÉ

The Castle of Vinné is a ruin of a Gothic castle

of the 13 th century near the village of Vinné.

The castle was probably built in the second half

of the 13 th century to protect the road that led

to Poland. Today the castle has partially preserved

Renaissance vaults, window and door openings,

and parts of the original plaster. You may also see

cellars or traces of ireplaces. In the castle, you

may get acquainted with various medieval crafts

(for example, foundations of blacksmithing, weaving,

carving, pottery or masonry). It is a magical place,

which in addition offers beautiful views of the East

Slovak Lowland.

The city is rightly one of the gems of eastern

Slovakia, which captures almost every visitor

by its uniqueness. The beautiful city centre

is surrounded by medieval walls with a length

of 2 km. It is precisely thanks to the uniquely

preserved history that Levoča deserved to be

hides the highest late Gothic wooden altar

in the world in its interior by the legendary

SPIŠ CASTLE

This is the most photogenic locality in our destination

that has not excaped the attention of the CNN

CHURCH OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

IN THE VILLAGE OF ŽEHRA

Unforgettable white jewel in Spiš, whose ancient

tower of the 13 th century is covered by a wooden

dome of an unconventional bulbous shape. The interesting

thing is that the Church of the Holy Spirit

has been preserved to this day in an almost intact

medieval form. The oldest building in the church

is the late-Romanesque stone baptistery

of the 13 th century, which is no longer used, located

next to the altar. Among other things, the church

is exceptional for its rare medieval wall paintings

from five periods from the end of the 13 th to the 15 th

centuries. The Tree of Life is the best known scene.

alpine meadows, and over 100 ultramarine lakes.

ČERVENÝ KLÁŠTOR AND PIENINY

Under the Pieniny, in the shadow of the Three

Crowns, there stands a Carthusian Monastery,

known as the Červený kláštor (Red Monastery).

It was built at the beginning of the 14 th century

during Historic Hungary. Today it is a museum

and tourist attraction. The river near Červený

Kláštor enters a beautiful canyon called the Dunajec

Gorge. The Dunajec rafting on traditional wooden

rafts is the biggest tourist attraction.

THE TRIP IS GOOD FOR

LOVERS OF HIKING

SLOVAK PARADISE NATIONAL PARK

One of the most beautiful nature areas

of Slovakia bears its appropriate name due to its

rare nature values and beauties. Slovak Paradise

consists of preserved karst plains, deeply cut

river canyons, coughs and gorges with magical

waterfalls, extensive underground world of caves

and abysses and abundantly represented fauna

and flora.

TATRA NATIONAL PARK

This pride of Slovakia offers spectacular views

of one of the most beautiful mountain ranges

in Central Europe often called the “Little Alps”.

It is a year-round destination, which will benefit

both summer tourists and skiers. The most

popular and visited tourist centres are Tatranská

Lomnica, Starý Smokovec, and Štrbské Pleso.

The well-known travel guide Lonely Planet has

declared Tatras as the most important summer

destination of Europe in 2019. The High Tatras are

a paradise for adventurers. They offer waterfalls,

alpine meadows, and over 100 ultramarine lakes.

AQUACITY POPRAD

AquaCity Poprad is a world of fun, relaxation and rest.

The Aquapark includes 13 outdoor and indoor

pools with thermal water with a temperature

of 28° C - 38° C, water slides, and over 350 water

attractions. The water in the thermal pools rises

from a depth of 1,300 m, it is cooled by a technological

process from 50° C to 36° C to 38° C and contains

more than 20 different minerals beneficial for human

health. It helps with problems with the musculoskeletal

system, blood circulation, nervous system,

and also has beneficial cosmetic effects. The pools

have a stainless steel surface to minimize the need

for chlorine. UV disinfection is used for water

disinfection, which is gentle on the skin and eyes.
