This trip is mix of the best places that I think, you must visit in West, North west and Middle of the Slovakia. It is a shorter version of tour around whole Slovakia, that I already made with some guests that I had in Slovakia from other countries. It is perfect trip for real travelers and people, who loves to discover and visit interesting places, who love history, nature and relax in wellness! I tried to make a combination of best spots that you can see in this beautiful country. Many people do not know, what to search for in Slovakia, so they stay only in Bratislava, but Slovakia has plenty beautiful places that othervise you will have to search for in whole world. In slovakia you can find them in one small country. You will see and I believe that you will be satisfied, as other people that I showed this spots before. We will visit beautiful places that are hidden to many foreigner tourists, but are worthy to be seen. Slovakia is a hidden gem that has a lot to offer. In Slovakia, you can find 425 mansions and 180 castles, 123 thermal springs and 7014 caves, 4181 churches, except that, you can find here many monasteries, rivers, mines, beautiful mountains, desert, thousands of lakes and many other interesting places … in relatively small land, you can find many things that you will otherwise search in whole World. 10 days is too short to show you all beauties that is Slovakia hiding, but you can see at least some of them, and I hope that after this small tasting of Slovakia, you will want to come here again to see more, and you will bring also more of your friends. During this trip, we will do many activities, and it is very intensive trip, as you will see a lot in a very short time, but I did this trip already also for families with small kids and no one has a problem to keep the program and whole family enjoyed it. We will visit a few cities in Slovakia, will see a few beautiful castles, museums and few other attractions, we can make a small hiking trip if you will like, and we will relax in wellness, in thermal springs or in lakes. The trip I can make in Deluxe version - where I will book very nice hotels with breakfast, some of that hotels has playgrounds, wellness inside the hotel, or other attractions included in price. You will stay in double rooms. So you will really enjoy the comfort of the trip. We will go by luxury car Jaguar F-pace, where is enough space. This version is for people who have no problem to pay a little more, but they want to enjoy a comfort. The same trip I can make in Budget version for people who want to save their travelling budget, but in this case we will stay in more simple rooms in private apartments or smaller pensions, without breakfast, swimming pool and other attractions included in price, and we will share the rooms together. The trip is suitable for small group of friends, couples, families... In case that you want to be bigger group as 4, I have an option to hire 2nd car with 2nd driver and make a trip for group up to 8 people.

I am a passionate traveler. I am travelling as much as I can and from time to time I am planning trips also for other people. I like to meet new people and I like to show them places that I think are worthy to see.

Info about the accommodation: During the trip, we will stay in 4 hotels. Each hotel 2 nights, she last one 3 nights. I was trying to choose hotels with higher standards, or unique rooms, but still in reasonable price. Each hotel will be different and some of them have wellness or swimming pool inside the hotel. Breakfast will be included in a price. The price is calculated for 2 or 3 people in a room. So ideal for couples or friends. In some case, I may share room with guests after discussion. If there will be a family or group of 4 people that want to share one room, in some hotels is an option to book 4-5 beds apartment. If you have any questions, you can ask in the Q&A - see you in Slovakia!
