Slovakia borders with Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Ukraine. It's home to a diverse population scattered across mountains, lakes, forests and the Danube basin. Earlier this year, Tatra Photography built three wooden wildlife hides in Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains, providing visitors with the unique opportunity to capture close-up images of wild brown bears in their natural habitat. Having snapped photos of a 350kg brown bear shortly after, they share some of their best pictures of Slovakia with us.
