Slovakia is landlocked and mountainous and it’s set in the heart of Europe where the Celts once lived in pre-Christian times. This was naturally long before the country was absorbed into the former Czechoslovakia. With a quiet and relaxed pace of life, Slovakia has wonderful architecture with medieval castles and cities. There's a delightful absence of commercialism and, for the time being at least, the country remains refreshingly quaint and congestion-free.
Andy Warhol was the son of Slovak parents and there's a Warhol museum in the town of Medzilaborce that displays some of his artwork. Closer to the capital, the Danubiana Art Museum sits on the Danube peninsula, projecting out into the Gabčíkovo Dam, where it was founded by Dutch entrepreneur Gerard H. Meulensteen in 2000 to promote contemporary Slovak art and young artists in particular.
According to the Slovak Golf Association, there are now almost thirty golf courses in the country and two of them at the Penati Golf Resort are rather good. The Nicklaus-designed Legend course opened in August 2012, with the second Heritage course (designed by Jonathan Davison) appearing a year later. There's no doubt that this is the premier golf facility in the country and one that's worthy of close inspection.
