Culture and Nature
The mix of culture and nature is often encountered in Slovakia. Visit the village of Vlkolinec in Ruzomberok. It is a village of 40 historic wooden houses surrounded by nature where people work and live a normal life. The caves of Aggtelek Karst are the silent witnesses of past times. You cannot distinguish anything specific in their shape and size. All this was born due to a natural chemical reaction many years ago. Think of the Dobsinska Ice cave or the Silica Ice Cave. The historic town of Bardejov is a beautiful city with remnants of medieval culture. Fortunately, all of this is protected by UNESCO so that you and your children can admire these natural and cultural attractions for years to come.
