Slovakia deserves its own turn in the spotlight. When it split from the Czech Republic in 1993, Slovakia got the heavy industry and a less progressive government. The Czechs got the tourist sites, most of the economic opportunity and the "buzz" on the international scene. But with its flood of visitors, the Czech Republic also acquired some of the less appealing aspects of a tourist hot spot, including overbooked hotels and predatory pricing.
Today, however, Slovakia has much for tourists to discover. Its mountain villages maintain a traditional way of life, and its cosmopolitan capital city, Bratislava, is home to chic boutiques and international restaurants and hotels. Slovakia is also well-known for its spa towns and boasts some of the largest caves and ice caverns in Europe. For a vacation that won't tax your budget, Slovakia offers much to see and do.
