Hey guys!

Im trying to move to SK asap, looking for a job trough internet and move than since im single and not a native Slovak it isnt so simple, if someone has tips for a native Dutch speaker im happy to hear it.

I visited slovakia 11 times in the last 3 years. And im eager to find a good job and move.

Maybe there are some dutch/belgium people around allready?

Im married to a slovakian and have been with her for 10 years and i dont speak slovakian. I struggle to grasp it. She has moved back and i have kept working in Australia, i recently went over to know what im in for to move and i can see finding work being non slovak speaker very hard if your not in IT as im not. I think first need to learn to speak some slovak. I like the country side and culture something im looking forward too.

I am going to move to Bratislava in the next couple of months, as I have been transferred for my job. For now, I dont know anything about the city and its living conditions. Also, I have never been to another country. So, there is some nervous excitement. I hope to find new friends and have a good time there.

Dear Yasi ;

Kindly send me a message :)


Hi all,

Not sure if anyone is reading this now but I'll try anyway!

I'm Jamie from Edinburgh, Scotland. This is 2nd time for me in Slovakia, I was first here between 2011 and 2013.

Over here to study for a commercial pilot's licence plus looking to do a TEFL course.

I live near Banovce nad Bebravou and would be delighted to meet fellow English speakers around the area.

Please get in touch if anyone is out there :).


Hi Jamie,
Im Dave and we are looking to move to Slovakia around June/July. How are you finding the country? ive been coming here for the last 10 years for holidays with my little Slovak family so now we think its the time to make the move.

Hi Dave here,
We are looking to move to Slovakia in June/ July and was wondering if its possible to get sky tv out there and whats the best broardband to get? We have a house in a village called Bojna near a town called Topolcany so if there are any English speaking members (sorry i dont speak Slovak) in the area who could show me the ropes please give me a shout.

Hi Dave.

No you can't get Sky TV. The only cable package I'm aware you can get is provided by Antik.

I wouldn't say it's the greatest service in the world. The boxes are pretty useless compared to Sky's. The quality of channels is poor and the user-interface, likewise. Pretty rubbish really!!

It's acceptable but realise if you come from a TV package like Sky then you might be disappointed.

The only way around this is to have a Sky package in the UK, then use your laptop or iPad to connect to Sky Go through a VPN. (using a VPN client not detected by Sky). Bit tricky really.

Other than that good luck with your move!
