Step by step guide: How to search for accommodation in Slovakia or abroad

Table of contents

Mareena has prepared a guide on how to find accommodation in Slovakia or abroad.

Step by step guide

1. Decide on the area where you want to live 

The more specific, the better. Take into account how the neighbourhood suits your needs – where nurseries are available for your children, where your child goes to school, where hospitals are available for your parents, etc. 

There are various groups on Facebook or Telegram where you can find information on your compatriots’ experiences. Those groups include “Ukrajinci v Bratislave”, “українці в нітрі”, “СПІЛКА УКРАЇНЦІВ В СЛОВАЧЧИНІ“, etc. 

Check with the local municipal office – call and see how many places are available in the nursery or if the local hospital has the doctor you need.

2. If your financial situation allows it, use the services of real estate agents

You can find real estate agencies in almost every city in Slovakia. However, they charge for their services, usually via commission –in the form of a one month’s rent that you are obliged to pay to the real estate agent. Tell the real estate agent your needs and preferences and they will find a suitable apartment for you.

You can also find Ukrainian real estate agents in Slovakia, including in Ukrainian groups on Facebook or Telegram. Type a keyword (e.g. realtor) into the group search and the answers will appear. Make sure to verify the person offering the service to avoid scams.

3. Network with others who are looking

If you are in a situation where you find it challenging to look for housing, you may explore connecting to other individuals in need of housing. There may be a person in a similar situation willing to rent together and share costs with you. However, in such situations exercise caution and take steps to ensure your safety and the safety of your family. 

4. Learn words and phrases about housing

We recommend learning specific phrases and words in Slovak that will help you when making phone calls or inspecting apartments. Write down the words and phrases that interest you, use available online translators, and be prepared. Important phrases can also be found in this dictionary.

5. Search on the Internet 

The most effective way is to search the website. Try sites like , or Put in the filters that suit you and get in touch by phone or email. Don’t be afraid to write or call for any listings that suit you. Don’t wait!

You need to act fast, apartments in Slovakia are disappearing from the market very quickly, so don’t wait and call immediately.

6. Search Facebook Groups and Facebook Marketplace

It is very useful to search in Slovak Facebook groups and Facebook Marketplace. Find the group “Rent in …” (Bratislava, Nitra, Košice) and follow the listings regularly. You can reply to them via message. Facebook Marketplace will show you offers in your area. Make sure to stay safe from scams by verifying the adds.

7. Post into Slovak groups

The best thing you can do is to post an advert that you are looking for accommodation in Slovak in Slovak Facebook groups, for example like this: “Dobrý deň, sme slušná trojčlenná rodina z Ukrajiny a hľadáme byt cez štátny program v Bratislave. Prosím kontaktuje ma správou alebo na tel. čísle +421… Vopred ďakujem!“

8. Call any ad you like, right away

Properties come up very quickly, but they are also taken very quickly. So don’t hesitate, don’t be afraid to call every listing you like, right away. Make an appointment to see it and keep to time. However, it may happen that by the time your inspection time comes, the apartment will already be taken.

9. Don’t give up, it may take time

Given the highly increased demand and the scarcity of properties, brace yourself –   finding a residence may take longer than you would like, and you may encounter unpleasant comments, but don’t give up. Everyone we know has found an apartment so far, you will too.
