  • Big Rock Weekend

    I decided to spend the last weekend of November (including the last day of autumn) on the top of the mountain. Letting aside the tiredness, it was a good decision; I enjoyed every moment of these 2 days.

  • Out & About in East Slovakia

    While getting to North East Slovakia by car is not exactly an ideal field trip, the destinations that await are worth the effort. Furthermore, it is far more convenient to get to this region by air, since Poprad now has direct flights from the UK, and elsewhere in the EU.

Alternatives now abound in contrast to the socialist era sport hotels, or neglected old spas and tourist lodges. Visitors may discover that sleepy historic towns such as Spišska Sobota, Levoča, Stara Lubovňa, and Barďejov certainly deserve a second look. The fact that these towns now have lodging and restaurants that far exceed previous offers is great news. Citeste restul articolului
