  • High Tatras Skiing

    For Westerners who are thinking of going to the High Tatras for skiing here are a couple of tips/warnings:- Some skiers (also sightseers and tobogganers) persist in the habit of walking up the pistes, rather than pay (or wait) for a ski lift;- Most resorts are not actually set out for ease of access by train (e.g. the railway station is at least...

  • For lazy swimmers :)

  • Biking and bicycles

    I noticed quite a lot of locals riding a bicycle and not exclusively for recreation esp. in the countryside. Quite many Slovaks don't have cars and used to ride a bicycle instead. There were not special, designated for bicycles trails at least in and around Zuberec but 2 of my friends rode by bicycle the highway up to hot thermal springs in nearby...

  • Horseriding

    I met few times people riding a horse in mountainous parts of Slovakia - in Oravska Polhora for example. As the surrounding mountains looked amazing I was sure it was great fan to ride a horse across the area. Hmm... I never did it (yet!). BYOH - Bring Your Own Horse (like BYOB - bring your own booze/beer :-).Sorry, I don't know where to rent a...
