The warmer temperatures arrive in the later months with warm, pleasant days for the month of April and May, making it a popular time to visit the country. Easter is celebrated over a number of days either in March or April, a unique cultural experience in the country. In May the Slovaks celebrate ancient May Day festivals on May 1st. Visiting the Danube region is best enjoyed from April through October. Spring is also the blossom season when fruit trees are in full bloom.
