Discover Slovakia before the tourism gods do.

Slovakia is a fascinating country to visit. It has so much more to offer than it's capital city of Bratislava ( the city most Americans only know as the hometown of SNL's " couple of wild and crazy guys " ). Actually Bratislava does not even make my list of the best places to visit in Slovakia.

Slovakia is yet to become popular with tourists. Slovakia has good roads, and outstanding train and bus service. Trains and buses are laughably cheap. It is a safe and friendly country to visit. Forget the old communist stereotypes. Talk about a good country to visit on a tight travel budget. In Levoca you can buy an excellent four course meal for the price of a small piece of cake in Vienna.

In my travel pages I will lead you through the back door of the emerging beauty called Slovakia.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Many things to see and experience. A great place for participation in high adrenaline sports. Spectacular scenery.
  • Cons:Country of choice for summit meetings between egotistical and stubborn heads of state.
  • In a nutshell:The back door stays open. Y'all come in and make yourselves at home.

    Great page on Slovakia. You have pointed out all the places I missed last time I was there - good reason to go there a second time (;-).

    Very interesting information about Slovakia. Enjoyed the historical info. & architecture. I took particular note of your observation about lack of recreational facilities for youth & was curious about this.
