Slovakia represents the "hidden" part of Eastern Europe. Indeed, one couple who has traveled with us on twelve bicycling tours and three Expeditions have pronounced the Krakow to Budapest tour which features Slovakia, as their favorite of all!
Slovakia nestles into the southern slopes of the High Tatra and Carpathian Mountains and features the Low Tatra Mountains as well. We bicycle around the High Tatra and over the easy, forest-clad Low Tatra mountains on our way to Hungary. Traveling in Slovakia features traditional wooden architecture, traditional cuisine and local costumes.
Slovakia separated from the Czech Republic during the "Velvet Revolution" of 1993 and is struggling to reclaim its identity and place in the "new Europe." Join us to discover this hidden and changing corner of the world by bicycle.
