Bargaining

Respectful bartering is common in markets, but fixed-price goods are the norm in most places in Slovakia. Gentle haggling might be appropriate when agreeing to a fare for long taxi rides (or where the journey involves the driver waiting while you visit something), negotiating a lower rate for a long-term guesthouse stay, or large purchases (such as furniture) from a family-run business. Otherwise, the advertised price is usually gospel.

Money

Roads branching from Hlavné nám, such as Mlynská, have banks with ATMs.
