A relatively unknown gem on the banks of the Danube River, Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia, is well worth a visit and easily accessible from Prague, Vienna or Budapest. The charming Old Town hosts beautiful architecture and abundant and well-priced restaurants. Concert venues such as the magnificent Reduta, Klarisky Music Hall and the Františkánske námestie (Jesuit church) consistently receive rave reviews from performers and audience members alike. Venture outside of the city to discover this “hidden” country in the heart of Europe. Visit the fantastic spa towns, wineries and enjoy outdoor activities in the natural beauty of the Slovakian countryside. Consider adding Slovakia to a tour itinerary with the Czech Republic and Hungary for a less-traveled perspective on Central Europe.

Classical Movements has been arranging together tours to Slovakia since 1995. Past clients have included the Bard Conservatory Orchestra, Smith College and Young Adelaide Voices, to name just a few. Tours to Central Europe have been planned for the Colburn Youth Choir, Cincinnati Singers, Partners for Praise, Miami Children’s Chorus, Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, Miami Children’s Chorus and the Philadelphia Orchestra amongst many others.
