Reviews for Tatras mountains winter vacation in Slovakia


review 5 Feb 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The beautiful snowfall on the last day - it clothed the trees and mountains in a thick covering of pristine beauty. Magical. The food was also a highlight. Every restaurant we are in was lovely, and served delicious Slovakian food. Every meal was a delight. The friendship we established with our fellow traveler from Germany.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Leave your technology behind, and enjoy life the way it should be lived. And if you are a cat lover, go down near the train station and give an outdoor cat a cuddle (and a snack).

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We used local facilities and activities, ate local food at local restaurants, travelled on the electric train service, and tried to fit in with local customs (apart from not speaking Slovak - apart from the basic words, it's difficult!). Also fed the local outdoor cats who live down near the train station and left some cat food with one of the local souvenir sellers was looking after them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Great. It was an active vacation, but also a peaceful and restful break.
