Encircled by no fewer than five countries, Slovakia gained independence in 1993, but despite its many cultural influences, it has a strong identity of its own. This is apparent in its folklore, which has its most powerful manifestation in the nationwide Folklore Festival.

Camping in Slovakia gives you easy access to the country’s diverse countryside: the soaring peaks of the Tatra Mountains in the north, the Danubian Lowland in the southwest and the extraordinary caves such as the Dobšinská Ice Cave in the east. Consequently, there are lots of opportunities for outdoor activities such as caving, walking and skiing.

One of Slovakia’s most interesting locations is Banská Štiavnica, the country’s oldest mining town set in a volcanic landscape. Once a significant source of gold and silver, it is now rich with museums and churches and offers an insight into the country’s history.

Campsites in Slovakia provide a great base to enjoy all the country has to offer. Choose between Alan Rogers inspected and selected sites and alternatives in each region, and select a pitch or accommodation to complete your search.

Shopping in Slovakia

The capital city, Bratislava, is the primary shopping destination in Slovakia. There are various shopping options here, including modern shopping centres and traditional markets. Bratislava has several shopping centres, such as Aupark, Eurovea, and Central. These malls feature a variety of shops, from international brands to local boutiques, dining options and entertainment facilities. The city also boasts conventional markets like the Old Market Hall (Stará Tržnica), where you can find fresh produce, local products, and hand-crafted items.

Visitors seeking more traditional Slovakian souvenirs can find them at the Slovak Republic’s unique shops operated by the ULUV, the country’s official folk art production centre. Elaborately embroidered folk costumes, pillowcases, corn husk and wire crafts, carved wooden figures, and ceramic goods are the most popular handmade items sold at these shops. Wooden sheep milk pitchers called črpák, decorated shepherd’s axes known as valaška, and long wooden shepherd’s flute called fujara are also sold in the Slovak Republic’s rural sheep farming villages.

For most shops, weekdays (Monday to Friday): 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
