Foreign tourists interested in hospitals

Nature and historic sites are not the only reason why foreigners visit Slovakia, the Pravda daily wrote. Foreigners also come to Slovakia for joint replacement, plastic surgery and artificial insemination, which can be several times cheaper in Slovakia than in their home countries.

Foreigners do not only use the services of private centres, but often visit state hospitals as well. Orthopedic clinics are visited mostly by clients from Arabic countries, while neurological clinics report mostly Ukrainian patients, the TASR newswire reported.

Foreigners often find out about Slovak doctors from foreign students studying in Slovakia.
