Slovakia is located right in the geographic centre of Europe and is an ideal place for you to experience high school and life at home with a host family. You’ll be completely immersed in Slovakian society and have the opportunity to learn the language and make lots of new friends. Its stunning ancient castles and natural hot springs may be what bring most tourists to the area, but this is your chance to dive deep into the culture of this young country and learn the real reasons for its beauty. Turn your day-to-day routine upside down and expand your horizons!
