Cycle Holidays in Slovakia

With an area of just under 50 000 square kilometres, Slovakia is one of the small nations of Europe and covers an area only slightly larger than Switzerland or the Netherlands. Like the latter, the state has invested heavily in the expansion of the infrastructure in the past and, among other things, created an extensive network of cycle paths in the past ten years. So you can fully concentrate on the beauty of the country and enjoy it from the saddle of your bike! With Eurobike you will discover Slovakia’s natural diversity, cuisine, cultural treasures and hospitality of the locals.

Bike Tours for every ability level

For the cyclist, Slovakia resembles a low mountain range with a hilly landscape in many areas. Slight ascents and descents are relatively common, but fortunately steep stretches are very rare and the exception. As a result, the country offers a very balanced mixture of stress and relief over longer distances, which does not overwhelm even untrained riders. The foothills of the Carpathians extend into a large part of the East, in the West the largely flat Vienna Basin and the Pannonian Plain spread out. The capital Bratislava is also located here.

Useful information about your Cycling Holiday in Slovakia

Beautiful landscape in Slovakia

The Climate in Slovakia

On average the temperature drops by around 0.6 degrees at 100 metres above sea level, while the amount of rain increases by around 50 mm. In general however the weather is continental temperate with an average temperature of over 10 degrees in the summer months and a maximum of 30 degrees during the day. Due to the mountains and forests at higher altitudes, strong wind speeds are rare in the lower air layers. For a cycling holiday, this has the pleasant side effect that you only have to conquer the ascent en route without any headwind.

The Slovak Cuisine

Due to its geographic location, Slovak cuisine is heavily influenced by surrounding countries such as Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. Traditionally, Slovaks prefer meat, potatoes and vegetables. Above all, the beloved sauerkraut cannot be dispensed with there. The cams (‘Nocken’) are just as popular. Therefore, the two favourite side dishes were simply combined and the delicious sauerkraut dumplings were created. These are served in different variants in the regions of Slovakia. However the national dish is ‘Bryndzové halušky’, in German ‘Brimsennocken’ with feta cheese and bacon. Are these dishes new to you? Then just taste all these delicacies on your next cycle holiday in Slovakia!
