Slovakia is located in Central Europe. It borders the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Hungary and Austria. Slovakia is not located on a sea, so it is a landlocked country. Slovakia and the Czech Republic were a single state until 1992: Czechoslovakia. Then they parted.
Attention – do not confuse Slovakia with Slovenia! Slovenia is a country that is located more to the southwest than Slovakia. The Slovaks belong to the Western Slavs, the Slovenes to the Southern Slavs. Hui, don’t get confused!
Slovakia is a very mountainous country. On the map you can see this well: all that is brown is mountains. However, the green areas in the south-west and south-east are flat. They belong to the Small and Large Hungarian Lowlands.
The Slovak mountains are part of the Carpathians, and especially the Western Carpathians. In the northeast they pass into the Eastern Carpathians. In total, two thirds of the country’s area belongs to the Carpathians. In the Western Carpathians lies the Tatra Mountains and in them the highest peak of Slovakia: the Gerlsdorfer Spitz or in Slovak Gerlachovský štít with an altitude of 2655 meters.
