"Nice little town in Slovakia countryside" Zilina by Alain-d

Zilina Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 108 photos

Zilina is a pleasant little town in the middle of nowhere (before getting transferred here,
I used to be living in Paris, please bear with me).
Its main "feature" is that the aforementioned "nowhere" happens to be great mountain scenery,
the surroundings are really great !

The city center is quite nice with two main squares and pedestrian area.
Lots of small shops, even more bars, cafes with really fine open air terraces in the summer at Marianske Namestie.
Nothing beats taking a beer or any other drink in the end afternoon over there.
However, being on the "east" side of Europe, the sun sets pretty soon, maybe surprising for people from western Europe (especially Spanish !) who are used to sunlight till late in the evening.

Pros and Cons
