Most of the country is mountainous (the highest point of the country is Gerlahovski Shtit, 2655 m). A third of the country is occupied by the fertile South Slovak and East Slovak lowlands in the southeast and the Danube lowland east of Bratislava.

State structure of Slovakia:

Parliamentary Democratic Republic. The head of the country is the president. The highest legislative body is the National Council (People's Rada).

Slovakia weather:

Temperate continental with warm summers and cold winters. Precipitation on the plains ranges from 450 to 700 mm. per year (mainly in winter and in the off-season), in the mountains - up to 1600-2100 mm. in year.

Language of Slovakia:

The peaks of the Carpathians and the spurs of the High Slovak Tatras are comparable in beauty to the famous Alps.


Slovakia abounds in river flows suitable for water sports (there are more than six dozen of them), and attracts fans of active tourism of various levels of training. The Vag, Nitra, Poprad, Hron, Belu, Dunajec are considered the most beautiful and suitable rivers for rafting.

Rafting on the Bela River in Slovakia

Vag flows among the mountain ranges of the central part of the country and has both calm areas, suitable even for family rafting, and rough rapids. Rafting down the Bela River is considered more difficult, but the wild Tatra nature and picturesque landscapes leave unforgettable impressions after traveling along this stream. Bela is full enough for descents only in spring and summer, and its upper reaches are only capable of experienced connoisseurs of extreme sports.

Quite simple, but also memorable and exciting - rafting on Orava, Hron.

Rafting on the Dunajec mountain river

Fans of extreme recreation on the water can safely go on rafting on the mountain river Dunajec. The rafts are connected from narrow dugout canoes. A raft raft in a national costume deftly manages a clumsy "floating craft", the raft jumps on large rapids, increasing speed. Sheer cliffs sweep by, the water boils and boils with white foam - scary and fun.

By the way, rafting can be done not only on natural river resources - excellent artificial canals are equipped in water sports centers in the capital Chunovo and Liptovsky Mikulas.


Amazing natural landscapes, splendid architecture and relics of centuries-old history are far from all the heritage of Slovakia. The main trump cards are miraculous medical and ski resorts.
