The portal about Slovakia Slovak-Republic.org, published the most popular investment and leisure properties of the country.
When speaking about buying an investment property in a city, the most wanted is, of course, Bratislava. There are new properties built on the outskirts of Bratislava and renovations are taking place in the existing districts of the city. The apartment investments were particularly popular, but the oversupply has hit the prices. One room apartment in the Old Town is about 120 000 euros, 4-room renovated luxury flat costs about 400 000 euros.
Other interesting areas include Poprad (with its ski properties) and Košice, cities with international airports. Easy access to the resorts brings tourists and property owners alike and largely supports the development. The property prices in these areas are still lower than in comparable destinations.
Investors may also be interested in cities like Nitra, the site of lowland vineyards, forests and thermal springs, Banská Bystrica, town in the middle of Slovakia with mountains and ski centers just around the corner or Trnava, one of the economic centers in the west of Slovakia.
For leisure investments, the national parks of the High and Low Tatra Mountains are very famous, because are visited not only by Slovaks, but by Polish, Russians and other tourists. Tatra Mountains are a UNESCO world heritage site with established resorts for summer and winter activities. Outstanding natural beauty which has a wealth of attractions to offer tourists including skiing, hiking, spa centres/wellness and golf courses.
