CEO and Product Manager
Petr started Slovakia Explorer 18 years ago after spending time in London, learning the English language and studying business. Travelling made him realise that the tourism industry was for him and that he wanted to show people the real side of his beautiful country. Passionate about the outdoors, he loves showing his three boys the wonders of the mountains by foot or on two wheels. Petr also enjoys spending time in his vineyard or at the apiary where he looks after his 12 beehives.
Head of Finance & Tour Manager
Bitten by the love bug in more ways than one, Romana got into the travel industry when she met her now husband, Petr. She loves being out and about in the Slovakian Tatra Mountains and has made it her mission to explore as many hidden corners of what she describes as “the most beautiful mountains in the world” as she possibly can. Both she and Petr love local folklore and the traditional costumes of western Slovakia, which is where they live.
