Welcome to Eastern Slovakia
Welcome to Slovakia's untrammelled east, where parks harbour secret caves and unsung towns guard off-the-wall sights. Freethinking Košice, Slovakia's second-largest city, is the prime reason to visit, with waterfall-kissed Slovenský Raj National Park close behind. But discovering Eastern Slovakia's strangeness is a big part of the fun. Start with Andy Warhol outposts in far-eastern Slovakia, and churches built without a single nail. Move on to haunted castles, ice caverns and the Slovak Vatican. Sprinkle it all with coppery spa waters, the country's best castle ruin, with a few architectural gems like Levoča and Bardejov, and you have one unforgettable road trip.
