Slovakia is quite a new tourism destination for visitors from the United Kingdom and Ireland and the economic crisis has reduced the appetite for travelling. According to available data from the Slovak Statistics Office, the number of visitors from the UK in Slovakia last year shrank by 36.5 percent compared with 2008. In the case of visitors from Ireland the drop was as deep as 49 percent.
