Don't miss delicious although cheap Slovak beer, if you drink beer of course. We bought one bottle of Zlaty Bazant (Golden Pheasant) beer because only this brand was cold = stored inside a frige in the grocery.
That beer tastes quite good in my opinion although nothing compare to Polish Tyskie and Zywiec hehe.
What to buy: Zlaty Bazant (Golden Pheasant) beer.
What to pay: For 0.5 l (16.91oz) bottle of Zlaty Bazant beer:
16 Sk = $0.44 = 0.37 euro = 1.69 zl
Kathy bought this strange, small can of Coca-Cola light in the grocery. She never saw such cans. Hehe, I noticed that most cans, bottles etc. in the USA are larger than those ones in Europe, right?
What to buy: Slovak beer if you like beer. White cheese (of cow or/ and goat milk).
What to pay: For a small can of Coca-Cola light:
11,9 SK = $0.33 = 0.28 euro = 1,26 zl.
There are a lot of small groceries on both sides of the main and the only highway (No 521) of Oravska Polhora. Many more than needed for local customers, I am sure.
They were put for visitors from Poland as prices for food and drinks were and mostly still are lower in Slovakia, although the difference is lower and lower. The groceries are marked by tables with written: either POTRAVINY (it's in Slovak language) and ARTYKULY SPOZYWCZE (it's in Polish). And they usually stay opened in weekends as well.
We stopped for small shopping by the grocery on my picture. There was no large choice but all basic food + beer/booze was available there. The lady could speak Polish a little. The Slovak and Polish language are similar but it does not mean that we can understand everything.
What to buy: Slovak beer if you like beer. White cheese (of cow, goat and/or sheep milk).
What to pay: 0 - 20% (beer) less than in Poland.
