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
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
There are fancy Italian restaurants. There are up-and-coming microbreweries. Bah. When all is said and done, there is one Slovak eating experience that stands out from all the rest, and that’s a trip to one of the rustic krčmy – … Continue reading
