"No tourist information?" Top 5 Page for this destination Slovakia Favorite Tip by matcrazy1

Slovakia General: 83 reviews and 80 photos

Favorite thing: It was very difficult to find any information on many attractions out off the beaten paths in Slovakia, for example on Vysni Kubin and its attractions: renaissance manor house and Hviezdoslav monument. There were no information signs there and no info (except one sentence) in my travel book on Slovakia (quite new Polish edition: "Praktyczny przewodnik Slowacja" edited by Pascal). And there were no natives around to ask. My conclusion was that just VT maybe a great source of information on Slovakia. But not the only.

Slovakia Travel Guide - in English, German and Slovak, great source of info and links on Slovakia: history, regions, spas, maps, castles, caves, mountain, trails, campgrounds, hotels etc.
Slovakia.org - Canadian page on Slovakia - culture, history, society, economy, shopping, key phrases in Slovak (audio) etc.
Slovak internet portal - in Slovak, internet portal with search engine,
Museums in Slovakia - page in English, German and Slovak on museums, galleries, sights, castles, towns and villages.
Slovak caves - everything on Slovak caves in English, German and Slovak: list, maps, pictures, opening hours, fees etc.
Hotels in Slovakia - info and booking of hotels in English and Slovak, hmm... very limited choice.
Tatra Mountains - fantastic pages on Tatra Mountains in English, German, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak: geography, nature, wildlife, tourist trails, ski centers, tourist facilities, maps, links and pictures.
Slovensky Yeti - fantastic pages in Czech, English, German, Hungarian, Polish, Russian and Slovak language: ski resorts, ski conditions, accommodations, prices, weather etc.

    Travel guides might give you information, but they won't help you find the places. They really need to put up some signs. Trust me, they can afford.
