So what are you waiting for? Take a healthy time-out, recharge your batteries in a wellness center or extend your stay to a real health spa retreat at a medical spa resort surrounded by Slovakia’s beauty.
EURO (€) is the official currency in Slovakia since 2009. As in most European countries, it is rather common to pay in cash. But of course all hotels, major stores and restaurants accept credit cards. However, it is recommended to ask or check the sticker at the entrance door for the accepted payment mode in each establishment.
Slovakia is not accustomed to large tipping. Leaving about 10% is considered a good tipping etiquette.
You can choose to travel by plane, train, or bus. The most common and popular mode of transportation is by train. You can find great travel deals online at www.slovakrail.sk.
