Slovakia - Places to See
The old city and the castle are the best parts of Bratislava. The old city is packed with museums and palaces. The castle, built above the Danube, was a frontier post of the Roman Empire from the 1st to the 5th century. Since the 9th century it has been rebuilt several times, most recently between 1953 and 1962. Climb up for the great views and to check out the very interesting Slovak National Museum expositions within. The Natural Sciences Museum of the Slovak National Museum and the Slovak National Gallery on the river are also worth a visit.
Recreational activities abound in and around the settlements of Vysoke Tatry town. Apart from skiing in the winter, hiking or biking in the summer, and other active recreation, there are several small spas in Vysoke Tatry. A small botanical garden of High Tatras fauna at the natural science museum in Tatranska Lomnica is another worthwhile sight.
