From the scenic byways winding through the northern mountains to the modernising cities of Bratislava and Nitra, Slovakia has many adventures to offer in a small package. The Slovak Republic, or Slovakia, is located at the precise geographic centre of Europe – it shares borders with the Czech Republic, Poland, the Ukraine, Hungary and Austria. Slovakia seceded from the Czech and Slovak Federation democratically and peacefully in 1993. The clean breakup has been a model for other countries looking to establish their own nation-state.

Slovakia is an ideal place for you to experience high school and life at home with a host family. You’ll be completely immersed in Slovakian society and have the opportunity to learn the language and make lots of new friends. Its stunning ancient castles and natural hot springs may be what bring most tourists to the area, but this is your chance to dive deep into the culture of this young country and learn the real reasons for its beauty. Turn your day-to-day routine upside down and expand your horizons!
