That doesn't mean that Slovak people are not good at technology or business. Slovaks share their time between jobs and family like any other nation. 

It means that every aspect of their life is packed under a joyful and respectful attitude.

Nothing is left behind, and this love for the environment can be seen everywhere. Slovak art blossomed, with state approval and people's encouragement.

Stories speak about their great culture of men and women who always come back to their birthplaces. It's like a spell. Slovak people are sensitive souls, with artistic talents, and a peaceful life.

Slovak Cuisine

Slovak beer is known to be one of the most delicious in all of Europe!

Slovak food and drinks are subject to multiple influences. They vary from region to region, as the Slovak people are loyal to their traditions and family recipes. 

Slovaks are used to have gardens and farms, so the ingredients depend on what people grow around the house. It's a tradition of slow cooking, with care and attention. 

Their cuisine can satisfy any desire. From dumplings to potatoes, from all kinds of meat to sausages, from soup to pastry, everything is tasty and appetizing. 

Slovak traditional food includes krvavničky (blood sausage), Fazuľová (bean soup), and Skalický trdelník (sweet pastry baked on a cylindrical spit).

Talking about Slovak beer will take a while, mainly because they love to make craft beer. They also love to drink it and to talk while they drink. 

Sometimes people say the Slovaks drink too much and with every occasion possible. But when the beer is one of your most durable traditions, you probably are used to it, and you call it food or moisturizing. 

You shouldn't talk before trying. Every region has its own beer; you'll have a lot to try.

Places to visit in Slovakia

Bratislava is a perfect contender for the most beautiful capital in Europe.

You cannot plan a journey to Slovakia without including Bratislava on your list of things to do. Bratislava is situated on the Danube River, like Vienna and Budapest, and it is equally beautiful among the most visited European capitals. 

The old town has a medieval flair. The flair that feels like time has stopped centuries ago. Brick roofs and peaceful life urge you to walk, discover, and admire. 

Once called “the town of fountains” ,Bratislava offers castles, churches, legends, history, and architecture. It is a place for arts and admiration.

You cannot leave Slovakia without meeting the high Tatra Mountains. With peaks over 2,000 meters, natural parks, and wildlife, the Tatra Mountains are a dream for every nature lover.
