South Slovak town of Komárno has rather rich history. As an evidence, these are many monuments and sightseeings along each step. However, their actual state does not always correspond to its importance as well as tourist potential. As an eloquent example, it is romantic point of headland, along tributary of two biggest Slovak rivers - Váh and Danube - inaccessible behind fenced enclosure. Even extent historical citadel, seized by Soviet Army troops till recent time, dilapidated from its great part, is waiting for its new sensual utilization. Nor famous natives are not enjoyed with sufficient respect. This fact is supported with a photo of monument, dedicated to Ladislav Pohrobek, Bohemian and Hungarian King. When we visited this place, the monument was covered with advertisement base presenting some coffee-house. Nevertheless, some monuments would not be let to erected, as a consequence of political passions, but would serve for beautifying of the town, reminding as permanent remembrance for future generations.

This time we will visit a small town whose name is mentioned daily in Slovakia in the weather reports. In addition to its predictions, it is also known for its observatory, which is the oldest in Slovakia and allows to uncover the secrets of the night sky.
Is there anyone in Slovakia who hasn't heard of Hurbanovo yet? This town is known for its weather forecasts or the golden drink that has been produced here for years. We have not missed our attention either. After visiting the observatory, we will take you through its streets today.
Only a few kilometers from the border with Hungary, a city was established, which, thanks to its golden water, became known outside Slovakia. If you visit Hurbanovo, your local brewery will certainly not escape your eye and smell. However, did you know that just behind its walls it is a breath of history? So come along with us to see these two interconnected worlds.
After a week, we continue exploring the Nitra region, whose highest point is Panská Javorina (942.6 m above sea level, Považský Inovec mountain range), where a 16-meter-high wooden lookout tower has been rising since 2010.
At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has affected not only our health but also our economy, including travel, it is difficult to plan a holiday or relax for the following year. Not everyone dares to travel to the sea or to exotics. But don't despair, because the Czechia and neighboring Slovakia offer a lot of experiences and relaxation surrounded by nature.
Today we will take you to the district Dunajská Streda, more precisely to the village of Velky Meder in the southern part of the Rye Island. We will guide you through history, visit a few sights and of course do not miss perhaps the biggest attraction of the town - thermal water park.
