Slovakia is a country in Central Europe. The country's capital and largest city is Bratislava which is one of the smaller capitals of Europe but still the country's largest city, attracting about 1.3 million tourists a year.
In 2018, Slovakia was ranked by the International Monetary Fund as the 37th richest country in the world (out of 187 countries), with purchasing power parity per capita GDP of $35,130.
Slovakia features natural landscapes, mountains, caves, medieval castles and towns, folk architecture, spas and ski resorts.
Slovakia's position in Europe and the country's past (part of the Kingdom of Hungary, the Habsburg monarchy and Czechoslovakia) made many cities and towns similar to the cities in the Czech Republic (such as Prague), Austria (such as Salzburg) or Hungary (such as Budapest). A historical center with at least one square has been preserved in many towns.
