Prices in Slovakia

Prices in Slovakia have changed in recent years. Many people consider this country to be rather cheap, therefore the trip and the costs found on the spot may surprise some, not necessarily positively. The introduction of the euro in 2009, which replaced the Slovak koruna, had a decisive influence on the price level. Although prices in Slovakia are not as attractive as they used to be, it is still not the most expensive country from the European forefront. Many people, for example, choose Bratislava as a place to stay, instead of the nearby, much more expensive Vienna. However, it must be honestly added here that the capital of Slovakia is one of the most expensive regions in this country. Higher prices can also be expected in Košice and in all popular mountain resorts where tourists come for winter madness.

Accommodation prices in Slovakia

The average accommodation prices in Slovakia are as follows:

  • we have to pay around 23 euro per night in a hostel
  • an overnight stay in a two-star facility will cost us 40 euro

It is also worth betting on less popular resorts, where the accommodation prices will simply be lower.

Prices for public transport and intercity transport in Slovakia

The prices of moving around Slovakia are moderate. We will pay 0.70 euro for a single public transport ticket. If we intend to visit more, or simply move around the city more often, then it will be much more profitable to buy a daily ticket for 3.50 euro. If we come for a weekend, the most profitable option is to buy a 72-hour ticket for 8 euro.
On the other hand, when it comes to intercity communication, rail is better than the network of bus connections. Traveling by trains is not very expensive and, above all, rather according to the timetable, which cannot be said about buses in this country. However, we can reach virtually every corner of Slovakia by bus connections.
A sample train ticket on the popular Bratislava-Košice route costs around EUR 18.60. However, if booked faster, it can only cost us 12.50 euro. On the other hand, a train ticket from the Slovak capital to Zilina will cost around 9.30 euro. If we want to go from Bratislava to Lucenec, then the train ticket will cost us less than 11.80 euro.
Bus ticket prices on intercity connections are more or less on the same level as rail tickets. Local connections are quite cheap, for example a ticket from Slovak Paradise to Poprad costs only EUR 2.60. In turn, a ticket from Vychodne to Spišské Podgrodzie costs 4.40 euro.

Taxi and fuel prices in Slovakia

Taxi prices in Slovakia are not excessive. You have to pay 2 to 5 euro for the very beginning of the course. Plus, of course, from 0.50 to 1.50 euro for each kilometer traveled. However, the waiting hour here will be from 10 to 18 euro.

Meal prices in restaurants in Slovakia

Food prices in restaurants in Slovakia are not particularly cheap. They may not be as high as in other Western European countries, but they are not the cheapest. Of course, they are influenced by the location of a specific premises, because as everywhere the rule applies – the closer to the center or tourist attractions, the more expensive. Many people also complain about the amount of food prices in mountain resorts in Slovakia. As always, however, you can bet on fast food or street food, which is the cheapest.
For a dinner in a cheap place, we will pay an average of about 5 euro in Slovakia. However, a meal in a better restaurant will cost us 15 euro (for three courses – starter, soup and main course). It is also always worth looking for pubs serving traditional local dishes and asking for the specials of the day. The highest prices in restaurants will be in Bratislava and Košice. In other places it should be a dozen or so percent cheaper.
