If you're looking for a European escape with a bit of a twist, Slovakia is the perfect destination. The country is pretty vast and offers great choices, from city break to nature excursions. Those who want to get out and about and explore Slovakia's gorgeous natural beauty will want to go for a hike in the High Tatras, which are alpine peaks in the east of this country. Winter sport enthusiasts will find great slopes in the Mala Fatra National Park, definitely a change from the run-of-mill Western European ski breaks.
If it's a city break you're after, Bratislava is an excellent choice. This city is very strollable, so just grab a map and go for a walk. The city centre is full of gorgeous white building with rust-covered roofs, while outside the city you can see the effects of the post-Communist era.
