Summer holiday season ahead of us

We have said goodbye to the winter season, the ski resorts in Slovakia have already closed and the summer and the associated summer holidays are slowly but surely approaching. Resorts and accommodation facilities are preparing to provide services for vacationers. Water reservoirs and lakes are very popular places to spend summer recreation, which provide visitors with the opportunity to refresh themselves on hot days. Of course, the most popular activities in the summer include swimming, water sports such as boating and river rafting, and we must not forget hiking and biking. As part of the holiday, we also like to visit castles and chateaux, which offer us a glimpse into ancient times and create a picture of life in the past. Some of them have not been preserved in their original form and only the ruins and walls remain, but these are also popular for lovers of history, who can see them during walks in nature.

Interesting and attractive objects that people are looking for during their vacation, whether summer or winter, are water parks and thermal baths, which are open to the general public throughout the year. They provide us with moments of relaxation and fun for the whole family in their pools and water worlds. However, who would no longer like to relax in the thermal water or unwind at the water attractions. Today, there is a thermal swimming pool or aquapark in almost every corner of Slovakia, so you don't have to go too far for a holiday by the water. Most swimming pools and water parks are modernly equipped and have different price levels, so everyone can choose according to their requirements.
From spring to late autumn, the zoos are a very popular place for a family trip. If you are interested in a bit of history, do not forget to visit the important historical cities of Slovakia during your vacation.
