Slovak nature is not only picturesque but it is also rich in unusual finds and rarities. With their dimensions, the Tatras is the smallest mountain range in the world with an exceptional concentration of wonders set in deep valleys and sky scraping rocky peaks. It is also interesting to observe the regeneration of kilometres of forest after the strong wind storm of 2004. The Slovak Karst National Park is the largest karst area in Central Europe. Ochtinská aragonite cave is the only cave of its kind in Europe. Together with other caves in the Slovak Karst, it is entered in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
More than 40% of the area is covered with forest, which makes Slovakia one of the most forested countries in Europe. And they hide secrets. In Kysuce, we can find the world famous, unique stone spheres and an oil spring, in Dobročský primeval forest we can find ancient trees in a 400-year development cycle, and in Poloniny National Park you can meet bears and wolves as well as one of the last European populations of European bison. Volcanic mountains hide former craters and stone waterfalls, next to Bratislava there is a paleontological dig of prehistoric fossils in the Sandberg sandstone formations. Breath taking natural creations from West to East.
