A Central European country boasts dozens of picturesque castles, scenic Tatra, Fatra and Beskid mountain ranges, and Danube Lowlands. The best time to visit Slovakia and take advantage of its natural attractions is during the warmest time of the year that is from May to the end of October. Summer is an excellent time to visit Devin and Spiš castles. Wildflower bloom in the High Tatras starts in June. Meanwhile, July is ideal for climbing Gerlachovský Štít, the highest peak in the Carpathians, and partying at Pohoda Festival and World Roma Festival. Winter is prime time for skiing in the Tatras, tasting young wines, and discovering local Christmas traditions.
