Ice Climbing in Slovakia

Dramatic natural scenery and budget-friendly prices make Slovakia a must

Although quite small, Slovakia – a land-locked country in eastern Europe – has lots to offer to the growing number of visitors it receives every year. Mostly mountainous, the country is dominated by the High Tatras – a relatively small mountain range that it shares with Poland and where some of the world’s most famous pages of winter mountaineering have been written.
