Re: New flights to Slovakia
Thank you for that information. I am planning a trip in 2008 and
trying to avoid the Vienna/Bratislava to Levoca road trip we did in
2006. It was very nice and we very much enjoyed the scenery both ways
but I would prefer to get as close to Spis County by air travel as
possible so I have more time in my area of interest rather than
spending it on the road. Plus, at our ages, the road trips are not as
much fun as they used to be! We have friends near Stansted Airport so
that might be a good jumping off point. We will be visiting those
friends in August on our way to Italy so I will definitely check out
the options from Stansted.
