Slovakia - or the Slovak Republic tends to be the forgotten half of the old Czechoslovakia. Each became independent in 1993 and the two countries whilst having much in common..........are quite different, offering tourists varied experiences.
Slovakia recently joined the European Union which will no have an effect on their economy, but it is a relatively inexpensive holiday destination.
I was visiting Slovak friends.They hosted our daughter for an exchange year.Having been to visit us in New Zealand it was now our turn to go and see where she had spent a year of her life.
With stunning mountains, caves and outdoor activities........ it is a wonderful destination for those who love hiking, biking, rafting along with soaking up the culture.With dozens of castles.......many crumbling and each with a fascinating story to tell,well maintained picturesque sherbert coloured old buildings surrounding town squares, the history is evident .

Prague to Banska Bystrica
I made my way by bus to Banska Bystrica right in the centre of Slovakia Travel from Prague was cheap and comfortable. It was interesting to cross the border, and immediately note the difference between the two countries. It was a little unexpected knowing they had been one and the same country only 12 years earlier.
