Last week we learned about the Trnava region from a height, we invited you to nature and visited a medieval ruin. Today we are going for a walk through exceptional cities.
After visiting Trnava last week, today we will set out to explore the surroundings of the picturesque region. We will visit natural places in the form of protected areas, reservations and areas, medieval gems and we will not miss the views from above of this beautiful part of Slovakia.
The Trnava region is located in the western part of the Slovak Republic. The area is the second smallest, but it offers more than enough tourist attractions. Lovers of history can take a tour of Trnava, for those who like spa, we recommend a visit to Piešťany, Velký Meder or Galanta, for gourmets and lovers of specific architecture Skalice and for pilgrims is definitely a picturesque stop Šaštín-Stráže.
Do you like retro? If so, we will take you today to Trnava and the High Tatras before 1989. At the same time, we will wander through Bratislava, both through the eyes of children and through the eyes of Matej Bel.
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.
One week later, we return again to the Trnava region, more precisely to the surroundings of Skalice. We will visit the popular tourist boat route, we will also go to the unique car racetrack and end the walk through this region on the wine (cycle) road.
Today we will set out together to explore the Slovak trinity pillars. Our first stop will be Bratislava, which has experienced many plague epidemics.
Head to the 25 most beautiful castles in western Slovakia, their overview is brought to you by a new tourist guide from the family publishing house Dajama. The book Castles for Children is another engaging publication in the edition Trips with Children, which will introduce you not only to Slovak medieval gems.
In the southwestern part of Slovakia, approximately 50 km from Bratislava, lies the town of Galanta. Although it is a small town in terms of its area, it offers visitors a lot of interesting things in terms of monuments and history.
Northwest of the regional city of Galanta (approximately 13 km) is the village of Abraham. Its immediate neighbors are the villages of Pavlice, Majcichov, Hoste, Velká and Malá Mača, Sládkovičovo and Pusté Úlany.
In the western part of the Nitra Uplands is the village of Velké Ripňany (Topolčany District) together with the local part of Behynec, which was an independent municipality until 1976. Take a walk with us through this village with more than two thousand inhabitants ..
After last week's visit to Bohdanoviec nad Trnavou, we will cross the bridge to the neighboring village of Šelpice. They are only 6 km northwest of the regional city of Trnava. They became famous mainly due to embroidery, viticulture and theater activities of local amateurs.
After walking through the village of Radošovce, when we returned home, we stopped in Jaslovské Bohunice, which is known to us thanks to the nearby presence of a nuclear power plant. Specifically, we visited the municipal part of Paderovce. It is interesting that three decades ago this part was an independent municipality, so it is no wonder that it still offers several beautiful sights to see.
Approximately 15 km from the regional town of Trnava in the beautiful valley of the Blava stream lies the village of Radošovce. Its nearby neighbors are the spa town of Piešťany, Hlohovec Castle or the famous Leopoldov Prison. Today we set out to get to know this unusual village, which was administratively established not so long ago (January 1, 1991), by separating from Jaslovské Bohunice.
South of Trnava (13 km) by the Gidra stream lies the village of Voderady. In the past, it belonged to the Bratislava county, but for the time being it is part of the Trnava region.
Pavlice is one of the picturesque villages in the Danubian Lowland. They stretch on the eastern edge of the Trnava Uplands, surrounded by meadows, woods and fields intersected by the Gidra Stream. Over 500 inhabitants enjoy rural life with all the joys and sorrows. Today we will visit this village and we ourselves are curious what it will offer us.
This time we will go approximately 45 km northeast of Bratislava to the medium-sized village of Pusté Úľany. The village in the Trnava region offers to see several interesting historical monuments.
The village of Brestovany lies in the northwestern part of the Danube Plain, only 10 km from the district town of Trnava at an altitude of 140 to 150 meters. The cadastral area consists of parts of Velká Brestovany, Malá Brestovany and Horní Lovčice.
The village of Dolné Lovčice, located 6 km from the regional town of Trnava, attracts lovers of wandering through villages and towns with a peaceful atmosphere, several sacral monuments and attractions.
The village of Zavar is located 8 km from Trnava, on the eastern edge of the Trnava loess board. The first written mention dates from 1255. In the village there are many sacred monuments and interesting objects from history. The most attractive ones certainly include the Classicist chateau, the new church dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary from 1907 and the birth house of the composer Gejza Dusík.
Slovakia is a country that is characterized not only by beautiful nature, but also by a number of sacred monuments. It is a pity that they are overlooked by the number of tourists who come here. Therefore, I decided that at least in this form I will acquaint visitors to the villages of Boleráz and Klčovany with these monuments, their significance and the reason for the settlement.
Only recently have two new publications from the family publishing house Dajama seen the light of day, which deal not only with Slovak, but also with European and world records of the Tatras and Trnava.
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.
The village of Šúrovce is located on the fertile Danubian lowland between Váh and Dudváh near the town of Sereď. The village with more than 2,300 inhabitants is only 12 km away from the district town of Trnava. The village was created by merging the original villages of Veľké Šúrovce, Valtov Šúr, Varov Šúr and Zemianske Šúrovce.
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.
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.
In the last week, we walked through historic center of Piestany and ended up at its functionalist style Colonnade bridge dubbed the Glass bridge.
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.
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.
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.
