Slovakia Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Slovakia
Hello and welcome to our Slovakia travel blog. You will find all our Slovakia blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Slovakia travel blog because you are considering a visit to Central Europe, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to the Slovak Republic, as it is officially called. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Slovakia.
Geographically in Central Europe, Slovakia was once a satellite state of the Soviet Union, so has a lot to offer travellers with a keen interest in countries that were behind the Iron Curtain. We have barely scratched the surface of what there is to do in Slovakia – our list of places to visit is ever-growing.
Our Slovakia blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
