Slovakia Road Trip Itinerary 0.DAY: ARRIVE IN BRATISLAVA

The day before you start our Slovakia road trip itinerary, arrive in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The flights to Bratislava are usually more expensive. I highly recommend flying to some nearby airports and then taking a train or a bus to Slovakia, Bratislava.

The nearest and most accessible airport near Bratislava is the Vienna Airport. The flights are pretty cheap, so you can fly to Vienna, then take a direct bus and travel to Slovakia, Bratislava.

Alternatively, if you are in the Czech Republic, visiting Prague, you can easily take a train to Bratislava. The connections are great and affordable.

Check in to your accommodation in Bratislava in the evening and enjoy the first impressions of the Slovakian capital.

Slovakia Road Trip Itinerary 1.DAY: BRATISLAVA

Let our road trip itinerary start in Bratislava. We will kick the tour off with the sightseeing of the Slovakian capital. Below, I am giving you some quick facts about Bratislava.

Located at the border with Austria (15 minutes drive) and Hungary, Bratislava is the only capital in the world situated close to the borders of 2 countries. The Czech Republic is also not that far away, only 45 minutes drive from Bratislava, so we might actually say that the Slovakian capital stands at the border of 3 countries.

 

BRATISLAVA

The city’s name has not always been Bratislava. It only adopted this name in 1919. Before, the town was called Pressburg. Only in 1993, Bratislava became an independent capital of the Slovakian Republic. Back then, Slovakia used to be part of Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia was a centralized country, and the main capital city was Prague.

Bratislava Old Town

Sightseeing in Bratislava

  1. Bratislava Castle – under Queen Maria Theresa, Bratislava Castle became a famous royal seat. It was built back in the 9th century and went through almost every architectural style. It used to be a Gothic castle. In 1562, it was reconstructed as a Baroque castle, and later it became a Renaissance castle.

  2. Michael’s Gate – is the only Gate that has been preserved from the medieval city walls. On the top of the tower, there is a statue of St. Michael and the dragon. The building hosts an exposition of weapons.
  3. St. Martin’s Cathedral – not only is it the largest church in Bratislava, but also one of the oldest ones. Back in the times of the Kingdom of Hungary, the church was used for coronation purposes.
  4. Bratislava Old Town – stroll through the old town’s streets, enjoy good Slovakian food and get an ice cream at – Ice Saloon Luculus.
  5. UFO Restaurant – visit UFO for amazing views of the Bratislava Castle, the entire city, and its surroundings.

Where to eat in Bratislava

Buchta is kind of like a giant dumpling, a traditional Slovakian dish. It is usually sweet, but here, they also make savoury ‘buchta’.

 

After seeing Bratislava today, you can go to the Bratislava Flagship for a traditional Slovakian dinner.

You can also hire a car in the evening because you will need it for the rest of our Slovakian itinerary from tomorrow onwards. You can do so tomorrow morning as well. Just make sure you have a car from tomorrow morning.

Slovakia Road Trip Itinerary 2.DAY: BRATISLAVA ⇒ ČIČMANY ⇒ RAJECKÁ LESNÁ ⇒ RAJECKÉ TEPLICE

Good morning to Bratislava. I hope you slept well. Today, we are heading off on a real Slovakian adventure. We will drive north to explore some unique places. The roads in Slovakia are well developed. You will go through the highway initially and then follow smaller roads, which are also very nice. We will first stop in a traditional picturesque Slovakian village.

Distance Bratislava ⇒ Čičmany village: 1 hour and 50 minutes (by car)

 

On the way to Čičmany, you can visit one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia. It is located in Trenčín city. You can stop there for lunch or a good cup of coffee (there are some great coffee shops), or a donut on the main square. Visit Trenčiansky Castle and then continue your road trip to Čičmany.

To learn more about Trenčiansky Castle and interesting facts about the city, check out my article about the top fairy-tale castles in Slovakia.

 

ČIČMANY

Here in Čičmany village, the houses are built from black timber, decorated with traditional patterns, painted in white lime on each of these houses. It is a perfect showcase of Slovakian folk art. Locals started to paint their wooden houses with white lime as it helped preserve them. As they loved the design, they eventually painted almost all the houses here.

Cicmany village Slovakia
Čičmany village, Slovakia road trip itinerary

Park your car and enjoy a nice walk through this small village. You can get some coffee and food at a local restaurant. Then continue your journey to Rajecká Lesná. You have driven the longest ride for today. The next 2 stops are very close to Čičmany, so you don’t have to hurry up.

Distance Čičmany village ⇒ Rajecká Lesná: 16 minutes (by car)

 

RAJECKÁ LESNÁ

I have brought you to this small Slovakian village to see the carved wooden Bethlehem. Jozef Pekara, a Slovakian carpenter, carved this Bethlehem, and it took him 15 years to finish it. He began the construction and carving process back in 1980. As we know it, Bethlehem displays the birth of Jesus Christ and captures Bethlehem’s atmosphere, from where the story comes.

Rajecka Lesna Slovakia Road Trip
Rajecká Lesná village, wooden Bethlehem, Slovakia

This wooden Bethlehem has all together 300 figures, and many of them are animated. It is a gorgeous artwork that you shouldn’t miss in your Slovakian itinerary. You can buy the tickets on the spot. 

It is 8.5 metres long, 2.5 metres wide, and 3 metres high, making it one of the largest carved Betlehems in Europe.

Opening hours: Monday to Sunday: 9am – 12:30pm / 2pm – 5:30pm

You can also taste and buy various types of cheese at the local cottages and eat some Slovakian dishes at the local restaurant. This place is fantastic and perfectly reflects our Slovakian culture.

After, we will continue and reach the Low Tatras mountains region with spectacular nature and many highlights to see. One of them is definitely the Demänovská Valley with its caves.

Distance Salaš Krajinka ⇒ Demänovská Cave of Liberty: 1 hour (by car)

 

DEMÄNOVSKÁ VALLEY & CAVE OF LIBERTY

Demänovská Valley is one of the most visited places in Slovakia. Not only is it a great hiking and skiing region, but it is also home to the longest cave system in Slovakia. We are going to visit one of the caves today. Come on a tour and watch the spectacular stalactites and stalagmites inside the cave. You will also see the karst ponds and the underground River Demänovka. Learn about the history and creation of this cave system.

LIPTOVSKÝ JÁN

Drive to Liptovský Ján. It is a charming place with traditional atmosphere of the Slovakian region, Liptov. Liptov is my favourite Slovakian region – it perfectly reflects Slovakian culture and traditions.

 

Where to stay in Liptovský Ján: My TOP TIPS for Accommodation

My recommendation: stay at the Hotel Liptovský Dvor – it has many separate wooden chalets, where you can spend the night. It is unforgetable. One chalet has a capacity of 6 people, so if you are travelling with friends and share the cost, it is a reasonable price for what you get.
