No summer holiday for 34 percent

AS MANY as 34 percent of Slovaks do not take a summer holiday at all, according to a new GfK poll. The main reason for foregoing a break is a lack of money, the Pravda daily reported.

The poll also showed that there are major regional differences in terms of holidaymaking.

In Bratislava, only 15.2 percent of respondents said they did not take a summer holiday at all, while this was the case with 42.7 percent of people living in the Košice region.

Countrywide, 34 percent of Slovaks do not go on summer holidays at all, and 26 percent take days off in the summer but spend them at home. Some 24 percent of those who do go away for holidays do so within Slovakia and only 16 percent splash out on a summer holiday abroad.
