"taking pictures in tourist places ..." Slovakia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by wojsyl

Slovakia Warnings and Dangers: 43 reviews and 33 photos


Slovaks often expect you to pay extra for the priviledge of taking pictures (with your own camera) in places like caves, castles etc. However strange it might be, it seems to be the way for them to earn some extra funds. No big deal about it, but be aware, that you're supposed to pay this fee in advance, when purchasing your entrance ticket, and that the "photo ticket" is not included in the entrance fee. Unfortunately they will often not advise about this when you're buying your tickets, so you'd have to insist on it yourself and ask about taking photos when buying your entrance tickets.

Or don't support this weird custom and don't pay them.
