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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After a short break yet again we went for a walk the Small Carpathian Mountains. This time we visited Hlbocianska valley near he town of Smolenice.
Fabulously beautiful Smolenice castle now serves as the congress centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, and so many people think it is closed to the public. It is not like that.
If you live in the western Slovak or just going there for a few days to visit family or friends, we have another tip for you, where you can spend a pleasant spring day.
