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.
Accept our invitation to visit the historical Trnava, which will lead us to the "famous gem of Hungary" – Matej Bel. Discover with him the unknown corners of the city and its history, and let's get carried away by the atmosphere of Trnava streets in the eighteenth century.
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).
Join us for a walk in one of the most important spa towns in Slovakia. There you can enjoy nature, culture, and amazing landmarks. Today we visit Piestany.
The ruin of Ostry Kamen castle stood once as a guardian of the so called Bohemian Road. The ruin is near Bukova, Trnava country. Its history isn’t as deep and as rich as in case of other castles nevertheless it is a popular place for tourists to see. And we went there as well.
Today, we travel to the region of Zahori. There we visit the town of Holic which holds a unique Baroque/classicist chateau, megaliths, and last but not least a windmill, our main destination for today.
Last week we made a tour from Dechtice to the church and monastery of St Catherine. This nice stroll inspired us to make another trip – this time to Dobra Voda town, couple of kilometers away. The town boasts with a beautiful ruin of a castle and Jan Holly.
In our today’s journey across Slovakia we visit a remarkable ruin located in the region of Trnava only 3 kilometers from Dechtice. People call it Katarinka yet its official name is church and monastery of Saint Catherine of Alexandria.
Beautiful Adamovska lakes belong to the Gbely town disctrict. The lakes are popular mostly among people that want to recreate and people who own cottages. Also several thousand water birds made this place their oasis. A visitor can observe them from nearby observation post.
Water work Králová on Váh-river in South Slovakia has relatively short history, so many persons could not enter into their subconsciousness, as an attractive tourist place of interest, making comparison to older dams.
