Walking Holidays in Banska Stiavnica UNESCO Heritage

Hi Barbora

We are safely back in the UK now - we were very sad to leave Slovakia. Thank you so much to you and Jana for helping us have a great holiday - we enjoyed every minute of it! It was really well organised and we loved how each of our hotels had something special about it. The pace was really good too - just the right amount of walking for us. The highlight was staying in Stary Hostinec; that was a really special place. We also loved swimming in all the lakes.
Thanks again for all your help.

All the best

Lenka,
Thank you for a great experience in Slovakia. We did use your GPS two days when we got a bit lost when unable to find the appropriate markers.

Banska Stiavnica Tour

Hello Lenka & Martin

All went well. The trip was all I hoped it would be. It was nice balance of beautiful sites and everyday rural Slovakia. The accommodations and food were excellent. Spending the last day at the Hotel Thermal was a nice ending. I enjoyed the thermal baths & saunas more than those in Budapest. I never had to put on my rain jacket during the entire journey. The biggest surprise were the beautiful variety of butterflies.
Thank you for the detailed maps and instructions. It was a worry free experience.

Best wishes

Dear Lenka

Thanks very much for everything both you and Martin did to make our walk so special, we really enjoyed the whole experience! Having Martin pick us up from Krakow was a very special way to begin our travels in Slovakia. We learnt so many interesting things from our conversation and we really appreciated the time he took with us, carefully explaining the walk routes and maps and giving us lots of invaluable advice. He emphasised the need to keep an eye out for the markers and to persevere if we couldn't immediately see them. This advice was most important as on a number of occasions it was difficult to find the next marker, especially frustrating when we came to a fork in the road or a number of intersecting tracks and there was no marker indicating which track we should follow. Often we had to simply follow each track until we eventually found the one with the correct marker, but it did waste a bit of time. No problem however, we were never lost or particularly worried!
We really enjoyed all of the accommodation choices you made for us, as each place had its own special appeal. We particularly enjoyed the food provided by the Cosmopolitan and the Hotel Sitno, but all the hotels provided us with good evening meals and lovely packed lunches. The misunderstanding at pension Kechaleman was unfortunate, but was a very small issue and we did appreciate your quick response. Stary Hostinec was probably the best of all the accommodation choices, very friendly and offering a fascinating insight into Slovakian history. All our luggage transfers worked perfectly too, thank you.
I will send you some photos soon. Thanks again for everything,

Best wishes
