Holidays in Slovakia: ecotourism in Tatras

Several types of holidays are now popular in Slovakia. The main direction is the ski resorts in Slovakia, which attract an increasing number of tourists, and not only from Eastern Europe, but also from Britain and neighboring Austria. On the second place by popularity is wellness tourism. Such spa resorts in Slovakia as PiešŇ•any or Bardeyovske Kupele are well known for its healing waters and clean air.

Clean environment and diversity of nature are the factors that allowed eco-tourism to turn in the past few years from a type of recreation for the elite into one of the most popular tourist movements in Slovakia.

Eco-tourism in Slovakia is being developed as a result of the large number of national parks led by High Tatras reserve and due to well-functioning infrastructure of rural holidays, where there is not only a wide choice of accommodation, but also a wide range of cultural and historical attractions: from castles to open-air museums. By the way, open air museums of rural life add extra charm to the Slovak eco-tourism.

Central location for eco-tourism in Slovakia is the Tatra Mountains. Local forests are the last place in Central Europe where live brown bears and mountain sheep. Here began to organize unique ecological tours travel agencies in Slovakia. During these tours eco-tourists explore the Tatra mountain forests in search of animals in order to be able to watch them in their natural habitat.

In addition, a number of foreign tourist companies currently offer unique tours that allow you to combine visiting nature and high eco-friendly technology. Thus, besides the amazing routes on the mountain slopes of the Tatras customers of the American company Hands Up Holidays are able to spend several days in AquaCity - the only hotel in the world that provides its needs only from geothermal and solar energy.
