The railway station in zilina is a pretty run down looking edifice that desperately needs an upgrade. If you are hauling luggage there are no escalators or elevators. There is a flat sort of rail that makes it at least a slight bit easier. Be mindful of your thing, a lot of not so savory characters congregate near the entrance to the station and panhandle or ask for cigarettes.
The pedestrian area starts across from the train station and will lead you right to the lovely main square.
Outside of Zilina, along the roadside you will find small farmer's stalls selling a variety of cheeses. This region has a strong shepherding tradition and the sheep's cheeses are very good.
What to buy: Sheeps cheeses. The one i bought was a bit sharp but very tasty
What to pay: various prices, as cheap as 2 or 3 euro, depending on quantity

The route from "Vrutky" to the ski resort (around 8 kilometres) is accessible only by car, there is no skibus. The...more

Zilina is quaint little town--very nice in the short time I was there. As you can imagine, good luck finding English speakers. You'll be lucky if you get a hello. Thus, know some key slovakian words and have some money already exchanged just in case. This should probably applied to most places in Slovakia besides Bratislava. Trust me--it was...more
