No. of pictures: 38 pictures
On the western side of the Záhorská lowland, there are two picturesque villages that offer several tourist attractions. The first of them is Veľké Leváre, which attracts Haban culture not only in the local museum, but also in the form of a monument reserve of folk architecture. The jewels of the village are the Church of the Name of the Virgin Mary from 1723, the Haban chapel or a Baroque chateau with a park and a mill from the 18th century. The second village is half the smaller Malá Leváre, offering visitors not only the popular recreational area of Rudava, but also beautiful monuments - a church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary from the Assumption from 1654, Baroque chapels and bunkers, which are remnants of Czechoslovak pre-war fortifications.

In the picturesque undulating landscape, the spa town of Smrdáky is situated between small hills and valleys at the foot of the White Carpathians. This Záhorie village is less than 7 km from the district town of Senica and approximately 90 km from the capital of Slovakia - Bratislava.
While in the past there were up to 12 towns (bridges and fords) on the Austrian-Slovak border, where it was possible to cross the Morava River, during the period of the so-called not a single road bridge survived the Iron Curtain. The only exception was the railway bridge between Devínská Nová Ves and the town of Marchegg, but it also operated only in a limited mode.
We will continue our visit to the district town of Malacky today. After getting to know Pálffy Castle with the adjacent park, synagogue or military monuments, we moved to the parish Church of the Holy Trinity, which is one of the oldest preserved buildings in Malacky.
The more than 17,000-strong district town of Malacky is the heart of Dolní Záhoří, a region between the Morava River and the Little Carpathians. The very location of the city predestines it for its immense natural, cultural and architectural diversity. Get to know it in the following lines.
Today we will go to the Slovak Pomoraví resp. Záhorie, where we visit the village Kuklov. This village is located about 25 km from the district town of Senica and the nearest neighbors are the towns of Šaštín-Stráže, Gbely, Kúty or the villages of Čáry and Borský Svatý Jur.
In the western part of the Slovak Republic, more precisely in the district of Senica, there is the village of Prievaly, which is 34 kilometers away from Malacek and 68 kilometers from the capital. The village became famous for finding treasures in the form of gold and silver coins when demolishing local buildings. You can see part of the so-called Treasure of the Prival Inn in the collections of the Slovak National Museum.
Today's tip for a trip will be Lakšárská Nová Ves, a village located in the southwestern part of Slovakia, in the middle of the Záhorská lowland, in the Morava river basin. It is 17 km away from the district town of Senica and consists of two cadastral areas, namely Lakšárská Nová Ves and Mikulášov. It borders Šaštín-Stráže, Borský Mikuláš or the Záhorie military district.
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.
We invite you on a trip to the village of Petrova Ves (Skalica district), which is located in a small but even more picturesque Chvojnická hills. Its neighbors are Gbely, Šaštín-Stráže, Letničie, Unín, Radimov and Holíč. The territory of the village is largely deforested and intensively used for agriculture. The oldest written mention of the village comes from 1392.
We will go for the beauties of sacral monuments even today. This time we will visit the village of Čáry in the northern part of the Záhorská lowland. It is located in the valley of the river Myjava, about 22 km from the district town Senica. It is adjacent to the important pilgrimage town of Šaštín-Stráže or the village of Gbely, a famous oil field.
Záhorská Ves je obec u řeky Moravy na okraji Borské nížiny. Dostupná je třeba po romantické cyklostezce z bratislavského Děvína. A co vás tu čeká? Krásná přírodní scenerie v povodí řeky Moravy, zajímavosti hraniční linie, monumentální starý cukrovar i půvabné sakrální památky, a to vše jen 40 km od hlavního města.
What else we loved about the region of Zahorie located in west Slovakia? Well, where is the only preserved building since the Great Moravia empire? Answers to this question and others are in this article.
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.
After several weeks, more or less spent at home watching television because I during a crazy ride on motor bikes fractured ribs, I could no longer wait for the next trip. On long trips my body still did not dare, so we decided that we go somewhere to water.
