Under the patronage of medieval castles grew side by side unique Romanesque rotundas, great mansions, modest wooden houses, and wooden Gothic churches.

Thanks to its location on the border of two contrasting natural units - Pannonian Plain and Carpathian Mountains can be a relatively small space to browse several types of natural and cultural landscapes. In terms of biodiversity Slovakia is one of the richest countries in Europe. In the Carpathian forests found their refuge beasts - that almost completely dissapeared in the western part of the continent - wolf, bear and lynx.
Slovaks themselves are characterized by their solidarity, which is especially noticeable in closer communities. People are partly characterized by conservatism.
