Shopping in Slovakia

Thought I would give a few plugs here for those visiting Slovakia this summer. Some stores that I have been to and know they carry high quality items for a low price.

Krausko a syn,
Hviezdoslavova ul. 158/61,
972 01 Bojnice
Ph in Slovakia, 0862 318 53

Artist Krausko creates outstanding Water Color paintings at very reasonable prices. This shop also carries a wide variety of handmade products of Slovakia. Worth a visit.

AGE, (pronounce - ah-gee)
Palarikova 5,
921 01 Piestany
Ph 042 838 25471

AGE is the most modern computer and television store I visited in Slovakia. A wide range of fine products and some very unique items for your computer desk. The document holder I have is like nothing I have ever seen and after a year still serves me perfectly. Besides my cousin works there, Jolana Tuchscherova.
The small outdoor restaurant on the small side road to Strecno castle (hrad). Located on the Western slope of the castle mountain and beside a mountain stream. I do not know the name of this place, but the owner presented me with gifts just because I was an American. He would not accept any money from me.
The Bee Museum of Kralova pri Senci, owner/manager Imrich Kessecy. Ask to take your picture with him in front of the main active Bee hive, then see what he does.
Mr. Lazarcik the horse drawn carriage driver at Strebske Pleso resort in the High Tatras. Last year it was 300 sk (abt. $10) for a long slow ride to the mountain lake. Must be experienced.
I have more IF anyone is interested.

What about you other travelers, want to give someone a plug here??? Email me at
