As every year this year yet again was held Traditional Trnavian Fair which also happens to be the oldest Slovakian fair. Right in the city's pedestrian zone visitors had an opportunity to watch presenations of traditional crafts. Children had also their fun owing to roundabouts placed in side streets. Great entertainment was provided by a cultural program taking place at the Trojičné square. Apart from visiting stands with craftmen, commercial retailers, and snack bars, visitors could even experience a little time travel by joining an event called The Middleages Under the Walls, which took place on the promenade. You can experience the whole event on following photographs.

Today we will visit one of the oldest villages in the district of Trnava - Vlčkovce. They are less than 10 km away from the regional town and thanks to their location they were in the past, as today, an important crossroads between Trnava and Nitra.
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.
Less than 8 such from Trnava, in the central part of the Trnava Uplands, lies the village of Bohdanovce nad Trnavou. This medium-sized village is immediately adjacent to the villages of Šelpice and nearby to the villages of Boleráz, Dolná Krupá or Špačince.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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).
We visited Piestany in the begining of this year. The city charmed us so much we had to return there. This time we spent there sevveral days and explored historic city's nature, sights, and history.
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.
