Timing your visit

Maintenance of public areas is, predictably, worse during and immediatdely after peak tourist seasons (mid July to late August in the summer, mid December to February in the winter).  If you do travel in these seasons, it is wise to try to arrive as early in the season as possible.

Travel in the off-season in Slovakia is even quieter than in many other countries, and both nature and tourist services seem less tired, as if it's all really there just for you.

Late springtime (April and May), though sometimes still a bit chilly, is particularly beautiful, with city streets and out-of-the way forests washed clean by rain and melting snow, and a generally brilliantly-colored outdoors.
