Slovakia trip report, things to do and see in Slovakia



In 1993, Slovakia peacefully divorced Czech Republic and has been somewhat off the tourism radar. But being one of the cheapest countries in Europe - it's only getting more and more popular.



The capital is a pleasant city. It has a castle and a few cute town squares, but doesn't merit more than a weekend. Head out to Pezinok 20 kilometers away, to watch a game of hockey, just don't suggest to the locals that the Slovak national hockey team might not be the best in the world. A sure good way to make friends with Slovaks is to make fun of Hungary.
