    Svevlad, this topic is great. Are so many beautiful places in Slovakia from what I'm seeing in those pictures and from what I saw on other photos. I may visit Slovakia this summer and I would like to read about few places that you post. Can you add some links please? Or if anyone from Slovakia can help me with some suggestions (cause I can't decide what I would like to see more; everything look wonderful) I would be thankful.

    I'd have to post too many links for all these places ;D but try asking some of the Slovak posters here such as Svatoslava.

    Well, it depends on how long you want to stay. Slovakia is not large country so within a week you can see whole country.

    ;D Basically you are right, but there are some differences. And here in Pilsen the beer is so great…

    Well, probably between 4-7 days. I would like to see a bit of everything: folklore, castles, art galleries(specialy printmakings if I can find). For sure I will visit Bratislava, because the bus is going there. Beside this I saw one topic started by Svatoslava ( http://www.slavorum.com/index.php/topic,544.0.html ) about Čičmany. So those two places I want to see for sure. But beside this I'm not decided what I want to see. As more things I'm seeing about Slovakia, I'm getting more confused, because I have the feeling that everything deserve to be seen. I have more than one month to decide. I was thinking if to stay in the aree which is between Bratislava and  Čičmany or to go also in other part. Orava castle is also very tempting, I'm seeing it every time in my road to Poland.

    Mainly depends also about how expensive Slovakia is and especially how expensive is to travel by train and bus. Or maybe is better to travel by hitchhiking? Can you give me an advice  :)?

    Al locului, here are pictures of castles and nature of Slovakia and Slovakia's top:

    http://www.slavorum.com/index.php/topic,2029.0.html

    http://www.slavorum.com/index.php/topic,355.0.html

    Although my country is little, one can see so much here.  :)  4-7 days, hmm, I think it would be better to stay in Western part of Slovakia, because there is also much to see.

    Besides Bratislava (don't forget to visit Devín castle near of Bratislava)

    image

    and Čičmany, you should see Bojnice castle which belongs to the most visited places in Slovakia (btw. it's near of Čičmany);

    image

    then Trenčín castle which is in a nice town Trenčín;

    image
    In the picture you can see a big hotel (just under the castle). It's the hotel Tatra where you can go and ask a receptionist about the Laugaricio inscription which can be seen from a window of the hotel. Laugaricio inscription's history: During the course of the Marcomannic Wars between the Roman Empire and Germanic Quadi, the Romans carved an inscription on the rock under the present-day castle in 179 CE and the place was mentioned as Laugaricio. It is the northernmost known presence of the Romans in Central Europe.

    then Beckov castle which is on the way from Bratislava to Trenčín

    [img width=700 height=491]http://photo.vivo.sk/jpeg/3650/139652/_n/6655545/Beckov” />

    as well as Čachtice castle where the "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Bathory lived and was supposed to kill and torture maids;

    image

    if you will have a little time, you can also visit Smolenice castle which is close to a town Trnava (near of Bratislava);

    [img width=700 height=499]http://www.cestovnyinformator.sk/show/picture/objectId/1911/pictureNumber/3_orig/name/obec-smolenice-smolenicky-zamok.jpeg” />

    yes, Orava castle, as you mentioned;

    [img width=700 height=525]http://www.horsanahory.sk/wp-content/gallery/oravsky-hrad/orava-3.jpg” />

    by the way, on the way from Trenčín to Orava castle, there is a town Žilina and close to it you can find another beautiful ruins in a nice nature – Strečno castle

    image

    and Lietava castle which is interesting due to <a href="http://www.slavorum.com/index.php/topic,449.msg5675.html#msg5675">its pagan past</a>;

    image

    then there is a town Nitra which is important for the Slovak history. See <a href="http://www.slavorum.com/index.php/topic,546.0.html">the Principality of Nitra</a>;

    [img width=700 height=525]http://photo.vivo.sk/jpeg/1324/84011/_n/3e2bec/Nitriansky-hrad-II” />

    close to Nitra is Topoľčianky manor house.

    image

    As for the galleries, check out Bratislava's galleries http://www.gmb.sk/en/  and  http://www.bratislavaguide.info/bratislava-galleries.html
    and museums  http://www.muzeum.bratislava.sk/en/index.asp + there is also a museum in Bratislava castle :

    image

    Check also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primate's_Palace where you can see English gobelins.

    As for another nice towns, I recommend you to visit old mining towns as Kremnica (there is the Kremnica mint as the oldest enterprise in the world which operates without any break. The coins have been made here since 1328 and – for instance – the Slovak Euro-coins are punched here as well)

    image

    and Banská Štiavnica;

    [img width=444 height=700]http://photo.vivo.sk/jpeg/2691/107894/_n/937bb7/Banska-Stiavnica” />

    by the way, near of them is a town Zvolen with this castle;

    image

    and there is also a town Banská Bystrica just next to Zvolen.

    image

    As for the mountains, we have Tatry mountains in North Slovakia, but you would have to extend your trip "a bit".

    image

    So, these are touristic attractions in this part of Slovakia (besides Tatry mountains)…    I hope I helped you somehow.

    Svätoslava, thank you very much for the informations. Before I post my request, I saw all the other 3 threads that you started and which you recommended me (which are great and full of informations, by the way). The point was that everything looks so good, that was hard to decide. Now that you explained to me how they look like on the map everything seems a bit more clear.
    Banská Bystrica  and Zvolen sounds also very familiar for me, beacuse I'm crossing both towns in the way to Poland. Unfortunately, we are not crossing close to the center of Banská Bystrica, so I'm all the time curious how it looks like, but in Zvolen I can see the castle from the bus and is it indeed amazing.
    Can you please help me also by telling me which transport (bus, train) is better to take in Slovakia?

    train is best, if there is railway connection do your destination. + if you are student, its relatively cheap

    Yeah, train is a better option for this part of Slovakia, but you will have to travel also with buses to get to places without train connection. In this site http://www.cp.sk you can check the connections. The site is also in English (bottom on the right).

    Brhlovce- a village in Slovakia which it is known mainly for its troglodyte-like dwellings cut into the volcanic sub-layer that have been suggested for the UNESCO World Heritage List. (Wikipedia)

    Cavemen. ;D

    I forgot to tell you an important information that you can only see the Smolenice castle outwardly, because it's closed for random people.
