Pleasant day trip

A pleasant trip outside Bratislava. Beautiful surroundings. Our guide was attentive and knowledgeable. A small tip: this site is in Czech Republic. This means you will need Czech currency. Some places en route don't take credit cards. They might take Euro but then you will be left with Czech crowns (as change) which on your return to Slovakia.

The tour allow visitors to see the country side of the Slovakia and enjoy the old mining town. Interesting place to visit. The lunch arrangement was little too expensive
