Camping & Glamping Slovakia is a small scale camping site on a large estate. It’s located near Veľký Krtíš, in the south of central Slovakia – in the province of Banská Bystrica – just two hours drive north from beautiful Budapest, Hungary.

Eating

If you wish to socialise, or have a break from daily cooking, we may offer an opportunity to share meals with us and other guests. [donations welcome!]
The campfire is for everyone to use, whether you want to cook sausages, make a stew, or toast marshmallows.
There are places where you can set up your own BBQ. Please observe all fire safety guidance.
As we are in the heart of green Slovakia, there are no shops within walking distance so please bring some provisions with you. However, if you need them, we can provide you with basic items such as bread, vegetables from the garden and goats milk; all for a small charge.
On occasion we have a small selection of beer and local wine available to buy.
Nearby in Čebovce, there are small shops, a garage and a restaurant.
Around 25 km away, the bigger town of Vel’ký Krtíš has supermarkets and everything else you may need.

What is there to do?



Hiking and cycling

Hiking and cycling – we can advise you on even more routes

HIKING

SHORT-LOOP TRAIL

Visit the whistling stone, ask us how to find it. Can you make it sing?
Provide opportunities to enjoy the beauty of nature on a relatively non-strenuous walk on trails and pathways. These walks are suitable for seniors, parents with small children, or for anyone not ready for the more demanding trails. Please consult each hike before you plan your walk–while most are gentle, some trails may have rough or narrow sections or steeper climbs.

CHALLENGING TRAILS

Are those that have significant elevation gain (400m or more), are 10km or more in length, trail conditions vary from good to rugged, and they generally take 4 – 8 hours to complete. These hikes are not for the faint-hearted!
For some trails, have a look at the pretty painted map below the biking section.

BIKING

For the biking enthusiast, Slovakia has everything from flat paths passing by schools, village and town centers, sightseing and other recreation areas to challenging remote back-country trails for more advanced mountain bikers. In the immediate vicinity of Camping & Glamping Slovakia you find mostly the second option – MTB fit trails. 4 MTB bikes are for rent at camping itself.

All hikers and bikers can borrow a lovely hand-painted region map with marked cycling trails and local sightseeing or use a  online hiking and cycling map with all marked trails.

GEOCACHING

Geocaching (geo-cashing) is an outdoor adventure activity that uses a handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) unit to find a hidden container (a cache). Individuals and groups set up caches all over the world and they share the coordinates on the internet. GPS units are used to find the location of a cache, sign the logbook, and then report the find on the internet.

To start geocaching, you can download a free geocaching app for your smartphone.


Culture and history sniffing

The region has many historic towns, churches, castles and castle ruins, spas, gardens, museums and lakes.

A few of them worth mentioning

The town of Vel’ky Krtis – outdoor swimming pool, shops and restaurants
Banska Stiavnica with its Mining museum, historic square, old castle, church and historic diorama
Banska Bystrica with its uprising square, museum and clock tower
Donovaly Park Snow
Zvolen Castle and the separate castle ruins
