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!

To get in gear for the festive season, we’ve produced our top ten of the must-buy traditional Slovak souvenirs. We’re focussing here on things that really aren’t the same if you buy them outside Slovakia, that have a touch of … Continue reading
Wifi: Good My memories of the old St Germain are fond, I must say. Tucked into a cosy little courtyard off bustling Obchodná, this dinky but dignified spot with its elegantly old-fashioned Frech decor, from the black-and white figures on … Continue reading
