How to Pack for a Trip to Slovakia
Nestled right at the center of Europe, Slovakia is an Eastern European country that is rich in history and filled with activities fit for any adventure-lover. If you're headed there to hike or ski at some of the country's vast mountain ranges, visit the traditional wooden churches or tour the national parks on bike, you'll want to maximize your luggage space to make sure you're prepared for a variety of activities. Eagle Creek has all the necessary packing elements to make prepping for your trip easy and organized.
The most important decision you'll make as far as luggage is finding a piece that's versatile and can fit lots of gear while also being easy to carry. For a country like Slovakia, you'll want to balance sightseeing with active and outdoor pursuits, some of which may require some extra equipment. Eagle Creek makes many different styles of wheeled backpacks that can carry loads of gear while still being light enough to carry on your back. The Eagle Creek Switchback™ 22 is a zip-off backpack suitcase that is incredibly versatile, it rolls over bumpy terrain without any issues, can be carried on your back as a backpack, and you can zip off the daypack and separate it from the larger suitcase to use it as a traveling daypack filled with all the essentials for a quick day trip.
With so many different types of activities and a variety of gear to pack in your suitcase, keeping everything organized can be a challenge. Eagle Creek's packing organizers can help you keep everything in its place -- from storing electronics in a Pack-It Specter™ eCube, to keeping your clean clothes separate from the dirty stuff in a Pack-It™ Clean Dirty Cube. Keeping your suitcase organized with packing organizers will make it easy to get from one place to the next without having to rearrange your entire bag every time you reach a new destination.
We can't stress enough how traveling with a packable can make all the difference. Eagle Creek's Packable Daypack can be easily packed within your larger bag and used on sightseeing day trips to cathedrals or hiking in the Tatras. It can also serve as a carry-on or personal item on your flight home - and is especially helpful it you've picked up a few extra souvenirs along the way. Also use it to bring a few other essentials with you on your flight in case your suitcase doesn't make it to the proper destination with you. Here are a few Eagle Creek products to help ensure you're prepared for anything:
