There are some truly spectacular sights to see in Slovakia. Its national parks boast some gut-wrenchingly drastic cliffs which descend into emerald green forests. An array of pristine natural lakes scatter themselves across the mountainous regions. The dense forests in the north are replaced further south by hilly grasslands atop which are perched some picturesque castles that transport you to another era.
One of the country’s most beautiful national parks, Slovenský Raj, which translates to ‘Slovak Paradise’, is the perfect description of the country’s wilderness and wildlife. It really is a place that offers a paradise to a number of species, from brown bears and wolves to marmots and to butterflies and dragonflies. For those coming to volunteer in Slovakia, exploring this country is a privileged experience that everyone should grab with both hands.
