1. Accomodation - based on my limited Google searches, it doesn't seem that there's too much in the way of accomodation in either of these towns. Am I just missing the right sites online, or am I going to have to stay in a larger city and drive in?
2. Arriving in Slovakia - I'm going to be coming from London, England (will be studying in England for two months before this trip); what is my best option for cheap travel to Slovakia?
3. Language - I've been told that the dialect of Slovak that my grandparents spoke is much closer to the Ukrainian language than it is to the Slovak spoken in Bratislava. Before I go, I'd like to gain at least a working knowledge of the language - would I be better to study Slovak or Ukrainian (or something entirely different?) to be able to communicate effectively in this region?
4. Anything else I should know??
