Rural Slovakia

It is quiet difficult to define the importance of rural tourism for Slovakia. There are only several dozens of historical-cultural complexes which tell you about Slovak way of life in the country. So-called skanzens are widely spread among them: the museums of folk stone architecture which are fully authentic and they are also known for preserving some every day life objects being one hundred years old. The museums of folk architecture are situated both in the west and in the east of Slovakia: in Bardeev, Stara Lubovna, Banska Stiavnica.

The tour along the villages in Slovakia can become one of the most remarkable events of your vacation. The Slovaks are the people who are attached to the ground to the biggest extent that is why a lot of folk traditions are alive today. A tourist can rent a cozy house somewhere in a picturesque Bochatckaya valley, in the motherland of a well-known Slovak alcoholic drink which is made from plums. It’s also possible to make a tour to Povazhsku Bystrica where there is an opportunity to get acquainted with a national color of Slovakia, to listen to Slovak folk songs and to see national costumes and dances.

The rest in the village of Slovakia is an opportunity to forget about the problems and to penetrate into a real country life without any ecological problems which are the result of noisy towns and stresses from transatlantic corporations. There is a really wide choice in Slovak farmsteads. You can really do nothing but enjoy the fresh air and a national Slovak cuisine, walk along picturesque suburbs of Velka Fatra. An example is walking along the paths of a reserve called Slovak paradise. For those people who are not used to stay in one place there is an opportunity to learn the elements of some popular Slovak craft, to learn to cook the dishes of a national cuisine, to help people in the harvest time or simply milk a cow.

Agro tourism in Slovakia is not only the country economy. It compactly intersects with the other trend – eco tourism. The majority of farmsteads in Slovakia offer an organization of promenades along the suburbs and also some outings by bike or on foot. You can see the life of a local fauna in Slovak forests. Some hosts who know their suburbs well can offer a tourist to watch bears and eagles in their natural habitat.
