Moving to Slovakia
Slovakia's principal conurbations are fairly evenly spread throughout the country, with very few of them exceeding a population of 100,000. One of the great advantages of this distribution of its inhabitants is that wherever your UK removals to Slovakia takes you, the country's communications and entertainments infrastructure, road and rail, fuel stations, restaurants, hotels and shops are in place to enable you to live comfortably. You'll feel right at home too, as many of these services are provided by well known and trusted names which are instantly recognisable to those moving house to Slovakia from the west.
Moving to Slovakia : About Slovakia
The landlocked country of Slovakia is located right in the heart of Europe. Surrounded by the Czech Republic to the west, Austria to the south-west, Hungary to the south, the Ukraine to the east and Poland to the north, its central location makes it an ideal base for multi-national companies from around the world.
Officially known as the Slovak Republic, the country has a population of some 5,500,000, which is roughly half that of London, spread over an area of just less than 19,000 square miles. As a country, modern Slovakia is relatively new as it only became an independent nation-state in 1993, but unlike some other European countries, its transition to independence was a peaceful one. There has not been a war here since 1945.
Removals to Slovakia: Places to visit
With its ancient history, Slovakia is full of interesting places to visit. When your removals to Slovakia are complete and you are safely ensconced in your new Slovak home, why not take some time out to have a look at a few of them?
If you like hiking and fancy a bit of a climb, pay a visit to Lomnicky Peak, the highest inhabited place in Slovakia. A cable car will help you reach the summit which, in good visibility offers panoramic views of The Belianske Tatras and the Polish lowlands. Turn 180 and you're greeted by a view of almost a fifth of the entire Slovak territory. There is even the opportunity to spend the night as the peak boasts the highest accommodation in Central Europe.
The castle ruins are more than 900 years old and the remnants of a building which was once one of the largest castles in Europe. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, history is kept alive at the castle with regular sword fighting exhibitions held by performers in full traditional costume. Also on show is the castle's kitchen with everything in it, and the prison which displays the different torture methods they used.
Slovak Paradise National Park
Located to the east of Slovakia, the National Park is full of ravines, gorges, chasms, meadows and waterfalls. You'll need to be quite a keen hiker to take full advantage of this area of the country but it'll certainly be worth it. Here you'll find narrow canyons and waterfalls which can be accessed via wooden bridges, ladders and chains. Waterproof footwear is recommended as some of the paths will take you through natural streams.
The Dunajec River
The Dunajec River Canyon is a UNESCO World Heritage Site separating Malopolska Voivodship in Poland from the Prešov Region of Slovakia. The waters of the Dunajec are the only ones from Slovakia to reach the Baltic Sea and on their journey, they pass through some of the most breathtaking scenery the country has to offer. As the river passes through the Pieniny national park you'll see all manner of rare plants and animal species.
Whether you are moving to Bratislava or not, it is always worth visiting a nation's capital. The city is steeped in history and Old Bratislava offers up some real gems. There's the Old Town Hall which dates back to the 14th Century, the Gothic Cathedral of St Martin and down town, The Little Blue Church of St Elizabeth; and then there's the towering white Bratislava Castle with its 4 pillars, one at each corner which stands high on a hill overlooking the city.
Cave of Liberty
Discovered in 1921 and opened to the public 3 years later, Liberty Cave is beautiful. Comprising a wealth of stalactites and stalagmites, its naturally formed halls and domes and waterfalls are a breathtaking sight. Its many steep steps may prohibit visits from the elderly and the very young but if you are fit enough, it is well worth a look. Regular tours of the cave are operated, taking 1-2 hours with plenty of opportunity to take photographs.
Vychodna Folk Festival
If your removals to Slovakia will see you moved into your new home by the first weekend of July, then you're in for a real treat. Every year at this time, the Vychodna Folk Festival takes place. It is the longest running folk festival to be staged in Slovakia and attracts performers from around the world. Alongside craft workshops and theatrical presentations, it offers song and dance programmes and performances by the country's leading folk musicians.
Open Air Museum Villages
Located all over Slovakia, these are actual working villages whose old ways are still practised and preserved. They offer more than a glimpse into Slovakia's past, as life is led here, as it would have been over a century ago with very little, if any, acknowledgement given to the passage of time and modernisation. Traditional buildings like the schools, churches and the craftsmen's workshops are kept intact and the villagers often stage exhibitions and events.
