From where I grew up, most people probably don’t know where this place is, or so I think (I grew up in southeast asia, no offense). Slovakia is a landlocked country located in Eastern Europe. It shares boundaries with Poland on the north, Ukraine on the east, Hungary on the south, and Austria and the Czech Republic on the west.
This may not be one of the countries on your list to visit in Europe. However, If you’re looking for an underrated place with great climate that’s not jam packed with tourists then Bratislava is the place to be.
Great weather, great food, beautiful sights and beautiful people. I would like to stress out that out of all the countries I have visited in Europe, the slovaks probably had set the standards when it comes to beauty. They have the most beautiful men, women, children walking in the streets, riding the trams, eating in restaurants and drinking in pubs. Try walking to Bratislava’s streets downtown and you’ll see Europe’s finest autumn and winter collection. (I prob exaggerated on the last part. lol)
