Spring Travel Destination - Slovakia in Europe

Slovakia 🇸🇰 is a small inland Central European Country with a wealth of ancient European architecture and picturesque sceneries. Bratislava, the nation’s capital 📍 located on the Danube, is the only capital in the world to share a border with two countries (Austria and Hungary). Bratislava is just less than an hour's drive 🚗 from Austria’s Capital City Vienna and Bratislava is full of Renaissance style architecture🏰 Most of the iconic monuments are within walking distance of the old town which you can easily explore along your trip.
