Slovakia Mini Guide

Considered to have the highest number of castles and chateaus in the world for its size, Slovakia is a great country in which to go sightseeing. Much of the wonderful architecture in Slovakia is Gothic, though there are traces of the Baroque and Renaissance influences too. Take some time to explore the Slovakian cities of Banska Bystrica, Kosice, Levoca, Nitra, Poprad and Zilina to get a sense of the history and atmosphere of this great country.

Located in central Europe and hemmed in by Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and the Ukraine, Slovakia can be easily accessed by driving from any of these countries. There is a route from Krakow in Poland to Slovakia and this involves going over the Tatra Mountains.

If you want to fly into Slovakia and pick up a rental car from the airport in the capital city of Bratislava, there are plenty of European countries which have flights to Slovakia. Lufthansa regularly flies from Moscow, Munich, Prague and Vienna. Members of European Union countries will not need a visa to get in to Slovakia and they will not have to change any currency either as Slovakia has adopted the Euro.  If you want to fly domestically within Slovakia, the national carrier Czech Airlines runs routes between the Slovakian airports in Praha, Kosice, Sliac and Zilina.

Slovakia has become a popular tourist destination over recent years and hiring a car to get around this diverse country is the best way to see its attractions and more remote areas. Whether you are going on a romantic break away or taking the family on holiday, Rhino will find you a hire car to suit your requirements and your budget. We have a very large selection of vehicles to choose from ranging from economy cars up to luxury cars and sporty convertibles.

Slovakia Factfile

  • Slovakia is a landlocked country and it has borders with the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Ukraine and Hungary.
  • The country adopted the Euro as their currency in 2009.
  • Slovakia's national dish is bryndzové halušky which is a dish of potato dumplings cooked with sheep's cheese and often garnished with smoked pork.
  • The most popular spectator sport in Slovakia is ice hockey.
  • The official language is Slovak although Hungarian is spoken in more southern regions.

Is it worth hiring a car in Slovakia?

Slovakia is a great place to have a holiday on a budget as it is not an expensive country and hiring a car is relatively cheap. If you plan to enter Slovakia by air get a visa before you travel as it is impossible to do so at the border. However, Slovakia is part of the Schengen agreement so that means you can drive from neighbouring EU countries such as the Czech Republic and Hungary without having to show ID.

If you plan to take a rental car cross-border either to or out of Slovakia you should check the terms and conditions per rental / agent as these vary. Where cross border travel is permitted, an additional fee / surcharge will be applicable. If in doubt, please contact us before hand for further information.
