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.

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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
