We're going gourmet this year: expect our output on where to eat/drink out to increase dramatically (quirky places only mind)! And because we like you to sleep well - and wackily: more features on some of Slovakia's more interesting hotels.
PLUS Lots of suggestions for getting out exploring a wilderness of mountains and forests.
AND what happens if you wake up one morning in London and decide, impromptu, to take the train all the way across the EU to Slovakia!

We’re extremely grateful to fellow Czech- and Slovak-ophile, novelist James Silvester for writing this article for us on the delights of the little-visited town of Prievidza and nearby Bojnice, crowned by its majestic chateau. It almost seems unfair to the Central-Western … Continue reading
I tried thinking of several possible titles for this article: “The hotel with the Roman remains”, “A night below the foundations of Western Slovakia’s mightiest castle”, something along these lines. Either of the above headings would be true, as would … Continue reading
There are a few things that can really make a regional town proudly independent from its big city rivals. A thriving arts scene (a theatre, perhaps), a particular point of interest… or just maybe an exceptional restaurant or cafe. … Continue reading
Like the Tower of London, like the Eiffel Tower, the thing that puts you off wanting to go to Kamzík, the big TV tower/mast standing sentinel over the hills above Bratislava is that it is, perhaps, too obvious. There is admittedly not much … Continue reading

Wifi: None The first time. It’s important, right? On my first time – with the tea tent in Medicka Záhrada, that is – a bare-footed, bearded man engaged me in an interesting discussion about birdwatching in Slovakia: besides recommending then serving … Continue reading
This has been prompted by the significantly decreased numbers of hits this blog gets on Saturdays: OK, potential weekend readers, this is what I’ll bait you with – a weekend break guide to Slovakia! Slovakia might be on that far … Continue reading
