Waterfalls in Slovakia

Waterfalls in the Czech RepublicThere are over a hundred waterfalls in Slovakia but I have listed only the waterfalls that matter: 30 waterfalls. Most of the waterfalls in Slovakia are located in “Národný park Slovenský raj“, near Poprad in the region Košice. Over a dozen waterfalls are located in the immediate vicinity of each other.

Slovakia is a mountainous country with a long stretched mountain ranges: the Carpathian mountains. The highest part of the country is the Tatra mountains with many peaks above 2.500 meter. The highest peak is the mountain Gerlachovský štít with a height of 2.655 meter.

Slovakia, officially the Slovak Republic,  is unknown territory for me but everything looks so cosy te me. From what I see on pictures nature looks very beautiful and I really want to go to Slovakia chasing waterfalls.

The town of Poprad looks a good base for chasing waterfalls in Slovakia. Within 20 minutes you are in “Národný park Slovenský raj” with several nice hikes to multiple waterfalls. It is also a 20 minute drive to the north to the region of Slavkovská dolina where there are several nice waterfalls.

Slovakia is high on my wishlist to visit for a holiday and to chase waterfalls. Unfortunately it is 13 hour drive to Poprad. On the other hand, Slovakia is a beautiful country with descent prices for food and hotels.
