Village Pub Crawl
Tired of the city rush but still longing for a drink? Enough of ordinary city pub crawls? Join this unbeatable experience and get under the skin of authentic Slovaks. Visit authentic Slovak village and try pub crawl as never before. You drink, we drive!
Why to go on Village Pub Crawl
Get deeper into the Slovak soul, talk and listen about it. Four villages, four local pubs, at least four drinks. We visit distinctive region Záhorie, north-west of Bratislava. One drink in every village per person and a traditional pub snack is included.
Difficulty: Easy – you should manage to drink four beers (or other drinks), right? Please note that pubs visited on this tour are authentic – sometimes can be smoked, sometime sleepy, sometimes noisy, sometimes football or card atmosphere can prevail. We take it as it comes - this is to see real life in local villages.
Easily the most unique tour I have been on ever. You can only see so many churches, castles and palaces. Seeing the recent socialism past was a very different and eye-opening trip through Bratislava. This is what Bratislava is all about. Truly enjoyable and overwhelming.
This was without doubt the best guided experience I have had to date. Juro did an fantastic job – both knowledgeable, enthusiastic and able tailor the experience to us. I give my highest recommendations to Authentic Slovakia.
It was a fascinating trip through this dystopian architects’ playground, and a really interesting look at how a small city like Bratislava has coped with the onslaught of communism and the effects of sudden urbanisation and centralized planning.

Please note: If you are up to wild partying in large groups, disco-like atmosphere and meeting other travellers, consider city pub crawls provided by other companies. On this tour, we focus on diving into authentic local atmosphere of Slovak village pubs. On this tour we do not use our retro cars, but we go by comfortable (mostly air-conditioned) cars - VW, Peugeot, BMW.
