ROUTE

The airport of arrival should be either a capital city of Bratislava, or the capitals of neighboring countries: Vienna and Budapest. The transfer to the hunting area takes 1.5-5 hours, depending on the chosen route and desired species.

HUNTING

The hunting method depends on the trophy species. Mainly hunting in Slovakia is by spot and stalk. Be ready for a rather demanding mountain hunt, if you plan to harvest a Chamois: the geography of the local mountains is not very easy. Hunting from a high seat and driven hunts are also available for different species.

The pristine beechen forests of Slovakia are on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and the largest number of carnivores in Europe inhabit those. However,the forests are not the only place worth seeing in the country. You are welcome to the numerous healing mineral and thermal springs and an unbelievable amount of medieval castles. There are also many various activities available, including, for example, mountain river rafting, lake diving and comfortable mountain skiing resorts.

“The emotions that good hunters need to cultivate are love and service more than courage. The sentiments of the hunt then become translated into art.” James Swan
