Dutch family discovers Rohozná as an excellent place for camping

“SLOVAKIA is Europe’s best kept secret” is a slogan that Dutch couple Monique and Dion Suppers read on the internet some time ago. And after living here for more than three years, they say the slogan might just be true.

“SLOVAKIA is Europe’s best kept secret” is a slogan that Dutch couple Monique and Dion Suppers read on the internet some time ago. And after living here for more than three years, they say the slogan might just be true.

The Suppers live in the central Slovak town of Rohozná, which is about six kilometres from Brezno. They bought a house there and set up a camping site that is visited mostly by foreigners, the Sme daily wrote.

Monique Supper says she and her husband came to Slovakia because they needed space, or, more precisely, freedom.

Their house, which has a large garden and a small camping site, is named Sedliacky Dvor (the Peasant’s Courtyard). At first, the clientele was mostly from the Netherlands and Belgium, but more recent guests include Germans, Britons and Danes. Most of them arrive with completely outfitted caravans.

Those without one can rent a caravan and a tent at the site. Bigger groups can set up their tents on a nearby meadow.

“We wanted a small camp,” Monique explained. “The large ones are not so good because there is no personal contact. Here, we are all together. People talk together, they help us cook marmalade, and take care of the animals.”

Tourists to Sedliacky Dvor also don’t have to worry about a language barrier. The Suppers speak English, German, French and surprisingly good Slovak.
