This is a collection of pictures from Slovakia. They are basically the result of a visit back in 1990 on an Interrail, and a recent one in 2019 to Bratislava, the capital.

If you look up my articles from Slovakia, you will also find a World Heritage Site and a regular travelogue. Before you do, start with these pictures from Slovakia.

Have a look at these photographic impressions from a few days in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It has a very pleasant and well preserved old town.

This gallery is one of six with photos from a four week Interrail mostly in Eastern Europe. This picture gallery covers present-day Slovakia, then called Czechoslovakia.
