Attractions from Slovak Republic

Mirbach Palace (Bratislava)
The rich brewery owner M. Speech had the rococo Palace from 1770 named after the former owner, Dr. Emil Mirbach. At the gable end is a big golden coat-of-arms and inside the palace you'll find e.g. some 300 year-old copies of old paintings by Rubens.
The Blue Church in Bratislava (Bratislava)
Hidden in a small street south of the giant super market Tesco in Bratislava lies this wonderful Art Nouveau Church, Modry Kostilík. An architect from Budapest was in charge of the construction of the church, which was built in the period 1910 to 1913. The church is unique on the inside as well as the outside with its wonderful decorations, ornaments and colours, which have no equals in all of Slovakia.
The Franciscan Church (Bratislava)
When you walk down the street Ursulinska you suddenly encounter the 13th century Gothic Franciscan Church. The city's oldest church was consecrated under the presence of Hungary's King Ondrej III, who granted Bratislava several privileges of autonomy in 1291. Inside the church is the striking St John's chapel from 1380, which experts describe as 'a Gothic pearl'.
The Slovak National Museum (Bratislava)
The Slovak National Museum owns and tends the greatest collection in Slovakia. It houses e.g natural history collections of mineralogy, botany, zoology, insects, health and the fauna of the sea.
Tatra National Park Museum (High Tatra Mountains)
The museum, which is situated in Tatranská Lomnica, is one of the greatest attractions in the Tatras. You can see e.g. an extensive exhibit on flora and fauna in the mountain area as well as learn about the geological conditions in the area.
The Cable Way in Lomnica (High Tatra Mountains)
In one of the towns at High Tatra, Lomnica, you can go by a cable car from 1941 to Lomnicky Stit at a height of 2,632 metres, the second-highest summit at High Tatra. The fare is 600 Skk and the cable way is running year round, except in November.
Miklusova Väznica Tower (Kosice)
From 1550 and 250 years onwards the Niklas Tower worked as prison. In the basement you can see the old chambers of torture as well as the hangman's chambers, which will give you the shivers. Upstairs you can visit the city museum, which has a range of historical exhibitions of Kocise.
Museum of Eastern Slovakia (Kosice)
Close to the main square lies the Museum of Eastern Slovakia, which has quite a few interesting collections. However, the most interesting object is the Gold Treasure from Kosice, which was discovered by chance in 1935 and consists of almost 3000 gold coins. The Gold Treasure originates from around the 15th to the 17th century and consists of coins from different countries.
The National Theatre (Kosice)
The present theatre in Kosice, designed by Adolf Land, was built at record speed between 1897 and 1899. Ede Mayer made the theatre's ornaments from Budapest, and the Austrian decorator Peregrin Gastgeb painted the ceiling. Between 1987 and 1994 the building went through an extensive restoration on the basis of drawings by the two architects Ratislav Janak and Miroslav Mudrovcik.
Bratislava Castle (Slovak Republic)
If you move up the steep steps to the castle, Zámocké schody, to the medieval Corvinus Gate you'll be rewarded with an amazing view of the Donau River and the Petrzaka residence bloc, which houses a third of Bratislava's population. The four-tower castle originates from the 900s but was rebuild several times.
