Full description
On the first morning, you’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Bratislava and drive for about 2.5 hours, passing by Trencin and Beckov castles as you go. The first stop will be at Orava Castle, one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia where one of the first-ever vampire movies, “Nosferatu”, was filmed in 1922.

After another hour or so, you’ll arrive at the Tatra National Park, the oldest national park in Slovakia and recently named the best destination to visit in Europe. Take an easy hike around a mountain lake before settling for an overnight stay in a 4-star hotel in a mountain village in Tatras National Park.

On the second morning, you’ll visit Spis Castle, one of the largest and oldest mediaeval castles in central Europe. The castle is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the oldest writings about the castle dates back to the 12th century. Drive around and enjoy views of the castle from the outside.  

Next, you’ll visit another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the medieval town of Levoca, located close to Spis Castle. Levoca is known for its well-preserved original medieval core dating back to the period between the 13th and 16th centuries, including the town fortifications and the Basilica of St. James which boasts 10 Gothic altars. At a height of almost 19m, the main altar is the real magnet for visitors.  

Next, head through the Low Tatras National Park on a 2-hour journey to Banska Stiavnica town. Take in a tour of this picturesque town and have a short break to relax. After the tour, you’ll head back towards Bratislava, passing Nitra Castle, one of the oldest in Slovakia, before arriving back in Bratislava for approximately 6 PM.
