The Carpathian mountain range starts in the westernmost part of Slovakia. And they undulate throughout the whole country. The highest point of one of the most striking mountain ranges in Europe can be found in the Tatras. There is no higher mountain range further north in Europe. Slovakia is the roof of Central Europe. But it isn’t only the Tatras which offers excellent opportunities for mountain tourism. You can also experience beautiful countryside views from the ridges of the Low Tatras, Mala and Velka Fatra. If you want to enjoy waterfalls, gorges and rock formations then visit Slovak Paradise, Pieniny, or Strazovske Hills. The plateaus, meadows with colourful flora and unusual karst formations in the Muranska Planina and Slovak Karst National Parks will take your breath away. Take a trip to watch wild animals in the deep forests of Poloniny, Cergova or Polana. Your guide through the mountains will be one of the best marked networks of hiking paths in the world. Whichever path you take, you can take a rest in the cosy atmosphere of mountain chalets or traditional shepherd’s cottages.
