The Celts and Germans have left their footprints first, Bohemian kings ruled here within the Roman Empire and others succeeded them. The Velvet Revolution took place in 1989 in Bratislava, a city built on both sides of the Danube River, near the lesser Carpathians. The country’s nature and culture are best explored from a holiday park in Slovakia.
