Slovakian highway sticker and attractions of Slovakia
The most visited places in Slovakia are located somewhere at the height of Zólyom and Kassa. If we were to leave Hungary for Slovakia, the easiest way would be to take road 2 towards Vác from the direction of Budapest, and then leave the country at Hont. If the destination is the eastern part of Slovakia - for example the Slovak Paradise - then take the route Eger, Ózd, Rozsnyó. It is definitely a good idea to travel on the highway, because then you will reach the High Tatras on the Slovakian D1 highway in the direction of Miskolc-Kassa.
The most popular sights in Slovakia:
Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia in the southwestern part of the country, in the border triangle shared with Austria and Hungary. Five bridges span the Danube in Bratislava. The longest is the Lanfrancon bridge, which is the bridge of the D2 highway. East of it in the old town is the bridge of the Slovak National Uprising, one of the symbols of Bratislava. Further down the river is the Old Bridge, the predecessor of which was named the Ferenc József Bridge as the very first permanent bridge. Next in line is the graceful Apollo Bridge, as the city's youngest crossing. The easternmost is the Harbor Bridge, on the lower level of which the railway leads, while the D1 highway leads above.
The castle with four corner towers, which houses the Slovak National Museum, can be seen from afar above the city. Below the castle is the Gothic coronation church, Szent Márton-dóm. The church was built at the beginning of the 14th century on the site of the previous Church of the Savior built in 1221. It was gradually expanded in the 15th and 16th centuries, and the chapel of St. John the Baptist was completed in 1730. It gained its present form with the 1895 renovation. Its Neo-Gothic-style tower is 85 m high, and a replica of the gilded Holy Crown shines on top, in memory of the fact that the Hungarian kings were crowned here between 1563 and 1830. In addition, famous churches in Bratislava include the Church of the Orsolya Sisters, the Church of St. Nicholas under the castle, the Church of the Merciful, built in the Baroque style, the convent and the hospital.ó
