Tips for trips
Join us for a tour in central Slovakia. We visit the district of Ziar nad Hronom, precisely the Royal mining town of Kremnica. Once, gold and silver was mined there and there is still a mint in operation. It is one of the oldest constantly operating undertakings in the world.
Upon our ride of the Danube Delta and our visit to the sea resort of Mamaia we headed to the Romanian capital - Bucharest. This city of two million offers interesting sights, history, and fun at great landmarks and attractions.
9th HORALFEST festival will leave the Vysoke Tatry for a city. The city of Ruzomberok will host the fest for two days.
Not so long ago, when a tourist got into Ostrava it was rather a coincidence. Mining and heavy industry was what the city lived of. One was afraid to roam in some district even during daylight. However, the city lives with culture today, there are many interesting sights, and growing number of young people who start new ambitious projects.
In the last part of our series about travels across Romania we visited the town of Tulcea. It is basically the gate to the Danube Delta. Every year, thousands of tourists from all around the world visit this place. We are no exception. We will take the 120-km water ride off to the Black Sea.
Cosmos Discovery is a world exhibition where you will relive the stories of heroes who went out of our atmosphere into space. You will touch the Moon, sit inside the cabin of a space shuttle, or get on board of the space station. There is grea t fun and many new things to learn for your whole family.
We leaved Brasov for Tulcea early in the morning. On the road, we passed mining fields, vast meadows, and the mountain landscape changed to lowlands.
There are many interesting parks, gardens, or other green areas around the historical center of Bratislava. People can rest there in the nature. However, the city center is not necessarily laid out in stone.
We set off to return to Brasov once we saw Castle Bran the said residenece of Count Dracula. We noticed Castle Râşnov, which is not less impressive. The castle sits above a town of the same name.
We have already seen the Waterworks garden and its many attractions. We followed the Karloveske river-branch towards the botanical garden at Comenius University, Bratislava. It was a very first botanical garden in Slovakia.
We started exploring Romania, a country on the Balkan peninsula last week. WE saw the towns of Arad and Brasov. This time we set off to the legendary castle Bran which became famous thanks to the famous Irish writer Bram Stoker and the book he wrote. Dracula.
We continue in our walks through green spots of Bratislava even today. We will visit only recently opened Waterworks Garden. The garden is located nearby the Danube River in Karlova Ves city borrough.
Romania, a not very tourist-frequented country is situated on the north of the Balkan peninsula. In our miniseries we invited you to experience places worth visiting. Romania is a country of wonderful nature, culture, and unique landmarks. We are going to see some of the latter on the following lines.
We crossed the new Old Bridge (the last week's article) and reached Danube's right riverbank, the borrough of Petrzalka. After this beautiful bridge, two beautiful landmarks caught our attention. The first one was the water tower. The other a noise coming from around the riverbank.
Across historical center of Bratislava we moved to another landmark after we made a beautiful walk along city walls. Our next point of interest is more than 120 years old. Yet it is new.
Presidential garden was the point of interest we saw last week. Today we see another great place in Bratislava - the city walls. They take you to the Middle Ages for free and also shelter you from the heat of summer.
Today, we visit one of the four countries creating the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is Scotland which is situated in the north of the island. The Atlantic Ocean creates its boundaries on the north and the North Sea in the east.
Summer is the period of walks and relax. Pools, parks, or mountains are welcomed shelters from the heat. We went to Bratislava's green oases this time. Locals and tourists alike find there refuge among trees and flowers.
Before the inhabitants of Hradec Kralove decide go to see nature beyond their city they should explore some of their boroughs. Novy Hradec Kralove offers everything what town people look for in the Orlice and Krkonose mountains – clean nature, forests, ponds, trails for bikers. There are also trails for people on wheelchair.
The Male Karpaty mountains is a very beautiful mountain range situated in the west of Sloavkia. There are many interesting paleontological and geological localities in the south of the range. The significance of this area led to foundation of a new Slovak geopark - the Sandberg-Pajstun geopark (SAPAG).
There is beautiful historical town of Znojmo near the border with Austria on the south of Moravia. It became famous for its wine and cucumbers. Only few know that you can find here, for instance, the relic of St Bonifac, many Middle-Ages landmarks, and that popular TEDx conferences take place there. Let's see Znojmo throughour article and the lense of our videocamera.
Three gems near the Sazava river is what you can manage to visit in one day. The castle in Ledec nad Sazavou, historical center and Svetla nad Sazavou chateau, and lastly the majestic castle in Lipnice nad Sazavou.
We visited the town of Master Paul last week – Levoca. We move 11 kilometers to the south to Spisska Nova Ves. This town is considered the gateway to the national park of Slovensky Raj.
We are going to conclude our mini-series on Lednice-Valtice cultural landscape in podivin. It is a small town on the way to D2 freeway. This town doesn´t belong to the compound. However, it would be a missed opportunity to not to see it. A uniqe Jewish wedding ceremonial hall or Januv castle (a Liechtenstein structure imitating historical architectonic styles) are just a few to name some landmarks. We are not completely sure how the name Podivin came into existence…
The Austrian Alps posses lure to domestic and foreign tourists. They are attractive and there are many marked tourist trails. The Ennstal Alps are also breautiful and interesting for tourists.
