Find the best cycling routes with the help of the bike route planner in Slovakia, a country of old forts, mountains and concrete blocks located in central Europe. The capital Bratislava is famous for its nightlife and the magnificent historic city centre with the imposing castle watching over the city. Slovakia’s idyllic territory extends between the and the world’s smallest high mountain region, the High Tatras. Having formerly been known as Czechoslovakia’s granary, the country declared its independence on the 1st January 1993 and belongs to the Eurozone since 2009. Quiet mountain villages tempt in the country’s North and promise moments of peace before one crosses through valleys with gurgling mountain streams and enticing panorama paths.
