More than half a million Slovaks travel abroad on holiday every year, according to Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry consular department director Ľubor Bystrický.

Speaking to journalists on May 3 in Bratislava, Bystrický said that Croatia is the most popular destination, with more than 200,000 Slovaks a year visiting its seaside resorts. Some 70,000 Slovaks spent their holiday last year in Tunisia and 40,000 in Egypt. It was also said that the number of Slovak tourists visiting Bulgaria and Turkey is increasing again.

In terms of the labour market, the United Kingdom is the most popular country for Slovaks to travel to, with as many as 40,000 working there, followed by Ireland with 15,000 Slovak workers.
