Placement Slovakia offers internships under the Erasmus+ program, ensuring professional growth and fostering interns' social integration and leisure activities. These internships go beyond work, emphasizing travel and spending time together.
We consider it our goal to expose interns from all corners of Europe to Slovakia. The nature of Slovakia is diverse and it would take more than one day or even a year to see all this beauty. We decided to show the interns the highest mountains of Slovakia - the High Tatras. We spent two full days enjoying nature and hiking. We were also able to observe the beauty of Strbske Lake and Skok waterfall. Our road was not easy and we had to overcome gusty winds, rain, sore feet, and tried climbing on chains on slippery rocks. But what a pleasure it was to see those mountain tops and to realize that you had climbed to such a peak, it took your breath away. Of course, the cloudy weather and fog prevented us from seeing everything we wanted to see, but not a single person regretted his choice, we were one team and everyone tried to give a hand in a difficult situation. This is exactly what we call team building.
The following day was packed with activities. After a delicious breakfast, we embarked on a scenic hike to Popradske Lake. The weather was much better that day and it was getting clearer and clearer by every minute. Some of the guys only reached the first point with the lake, the most desperate went further to reach the summit of Ostrava, standing at an impressive 1996 meters above sea level, where we were exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains and the natural beauty of the region.
Erasmus+ internships promise an extraordinary experience, offering invaluable professional growth, networking opportunities, and the chance to explore new destinations. Placement Slovakia is your trusted partner in making this remarkable journey a reality.

Maria, Payment Trainee
"I come from a family that is passionate about a healthy lifestyle and long hikes, and since childhood, I have been accustomed to well-organized trips. Therefore, I can confidently say that this trip was organized at the highest level; I did not have to think about anything other than the beauty that surrounded me. When I went to Slovakia, I had heard a lot about the beautiful nature, but thanks to this trip I realized that these places are a hundred times more beautiful. These landscapes, the air, and the endless mountains are so inspiring that it seems that you feel nothing but delight. Upon returning from a trip to Tatras, I was haunted by the feeling of wings behind my back, it definitely filled me with new strength. I am incredibly grateful to Erasmus for the opportunity to touch beauty and make dreams come true."
