Places to Go

Random city attractions, hikes to get away from it all, castles, wine cellars and caves… in this section, saddle up for slightly-off-the-radar Slovak sightseeing! Slovakia has a vast array of places to go, so this section will not come close to capturing all of them for a long time. But we like to think we include the very best of the off-beat…

For the best options, scroll down the drop-down menu for each Slovak region and the corresponding posts. For a journey across Slovakia in words and pictures, we also strongly recommend our Next on the Journey feature – which you’ll find by scrolling to the end of any article in this Places to Go section or the Places to Eat & Drink section.

Our destination content is now growing at such a rate of knots that for several places – Modra, Piešt’any and Trenčin (Western Slovakia), Banská Štiavnica (Central & Southern Slovakia) and Košice (Eastern Slovakia) – we now have mini-guides attached to the end of each article that’s related to these destinations: where you can see, at a glance, ALL the associated destination content! These are our Top Slovak Stop-offs – and we’ll be adding Poprad to this list very soon. (Bratislava, of course, has its own dedicated Places to Go, Places to Stay and Places to Eat & Drink sub-sections)
