Of course the English might be because the site owners in Slovakia to which you refer are all Dutch and the primary language of the website is Nederlands and it has a .nl URL.
However I do agree it is an amazing place. many spectacular country towns, a nice compact historical capital and lots of green open space
I have travelled in from the Czech Republic and from Poland. My favourite bit is the Tatras, and the far east to the Ukrainian border.
I particularly liked Poprad, some cheap flights in summer, lots of walking, ice caves etc and then Kesmarok, Presov Spis castle and Kosice. Went skiing in Strbske Pleso one year. Only hotel ever stayed in with no information in English.
There is a connection between the south facing Tatra mountains of Slovakia and the IOM. There is a narrow guage electric railway runs along the valley half way up, in and out of the side valleys, same guage as our eletric tramway from Victorian times and we bought some old rolling motor power stock and had Slovakian railway engineers visit here.
