Though Slovakia possesses a robust, modern economy, the country maintains a strong rural edge, with more than 40 percent of Slovaks living in villages of 5,000 or fewer. The landscape is dominated by the Carpathian Mountains and the High Tatras, which extend across the border with Poland to the north. Skiing is a pastime enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, and the capital, Bratislava, is located on the banks of the beautiful Danube River.
