At a time when the coronavirus epidemic closed borders and made it impossible for us to travel freely, pieces of a meteorite arrived directly from space in Slovakia. We were so interested in this unusual event that we set out on a journey to find meteorites in Bánovce nad Bebravou.
This year's bike season is at full swing. Bicycists may look forward to Vsichni Na Bajk event which has began only recently.
Ski season is just getting started so we visit a resort in the midst of the Povazsky Inovec mountain range.
Autumn is nearing its peak. Before winter starts, we set out ot Topolcany district, to Radosin town which became famous thanks to Radosin Naive Theater. Today, we are not going to visit the town itself but the nature sight of Certova Pec.
Last week we introduced you to sights, nature nooks and amazing places of this spa town called Piestany. Today, we put an end to our walks here and visit private port on the other bank of the River Vah. From here we start off an adventurous cruise.
We got on the Lazensky island by crossing the Colonnade bridge. The island is nothing but an oasis of health veiled in landscaped nature criss-crossed with sidewalks. There are many small squares lined with historic buildings hidding great treasures.
In the last week, we walked through historic center of Piestany and ended up at its functionalist style Colonnade bridge dubbed the Glass bridge.
Last week we started with discovering the beauties and sights of the pedestrian zone in Piestany. Today, we continue in our little sightseeing. Our first stop of today is the bridge of people in love. The bridge is close to the hospital and a visitor center.
We left the former luxurious hotel Grand Hotel Royal and walked down Sad A Kmete street (Winter Street) which takes us through the historic center. Soon we get to the so called Berlin guest houses (Dr Cmunt).
