Glad you liked it. Considering all the places you'd been to before, our Carpathian souls feel flattered. (Lucky with no people at this time of year - I guess it's the weather plus the recent, dramatic shift in the exchange rates between the euro and the currencies of the neighboring countries:))
I am actually Czech, but I lived for the past 15 years in the US. It is still relatively cheap (much cheaper than traveling through the Alps).
I found it a really amazing place, would like to come back.
Might've got it myself – such an outdoorsy woman – the Czech lifestyle I love so much. Typical Americans come here for the culture rather than wilderness. :) Well, I'd rather live in the States but since I cannot, I enjoy those little chunks of European-style wilderness, which Slovakia abounds in.
yes, it was long. I believe that this one is over 70 meters long. The longest one in Slovak Paradise is over 100 meters.
Maybe you can visit some day - not too far from Austria, they use Euro, and High Tatras (are actually very small), but have some nice peaks too...High Tatras are only 30 km away from Slovak Paradise. Still much cheaper than Austria.
