Croatian branch is a channel going through Bratislava's district of Petrzalka. It was built within a former branch of Danube. It goes from north to south until it turnes to the southeastern corner of Petrzalka. There live many plants and animals in the Croatian Branch. This unusual place in nature is located in the center of Petrzalka. Mostly birds live there and also fish, reptiles and amphibians. The most often you encounter there insects, mostly dragonfles, darners, grasshoppers, and butterflies. In the summer, the water surface of Croatian Branch is covered with white blossoms of water lilies . Partially for rich fauna and flora and sevreal endangered species the southeeastern part of the Croatian Branch was declared a 4th level protected area.

Today we would like to invite you for a nice spring walk. We visit Rusovc, a borough of Bratislava. There is a mansion, archeological excavation site (Gerulata) and beautiful nature.
Presidential garden was the point of interest we saw last week. Today we see another great place in Bratislava - the city walls. They take you to the Middle Ages for free and also shelter you from the heat of summer.
There are many interesting parks, gardens, or other green areas around the historical center of Bratislava. People can rest there in the nature. However, the city center is not necessarily laid out in stone.
The largest housing estate in Slovakia - Petržalka in Bratislava - hides many natural corners. One of them is the nature reserve Starý háj, which is located in the eastern part of Petržalka, not far from the Danube cycle path (Eurovelo 6).
With its area of 2052.6 km², the Bratislava Region is the smallest of all regions of Slovakia. As for natural or historically valuable places, it certainly does not lag behind others.
The collection of vines, the tasting of grape must and burčák are also inseparable from the colorful autumn. The last warm rays of the sun invite you to go on a trip. An ideal combination of both activities is a visit to the beautiful wine village Svatý Jur.
Only recently have Petržalské hájovny become important forestry places, thanks to which they have been partially restored, they have once again become known not only to locals and they provide us with a forgotten view of the past.
Last week we introduced the Petržalka gamekeeper's lodges, today we will go to perhaps the most popular lakes in Bratislava, where you can fish, take a walk and take a bath in the summer. But there are no limits to swimming, you can also use the lakes for hardening, which is very modern at this time.
It has been a week since we invited you for a walk around the Petržalka lakes for the first time. We visited Velký Draždiak, which changes mainly during the summer to a popular recreational location with the possibility of swimming, refreshments and sports activities.
We invite you for a walk through one of the most popular and most beautiful public parks in Bratislava. It is located in a relatively densely built-up area of the Old Town and is called the Medical Garden, which aptly describes the surrounding presence of a polyclinic, school or dean's office at the Comenius University Faculty of Medicine.
The Old Town has few corners to hide from the hustle and bustle of the streets. You can go to one of the public parks, for a walk through the medieval Kapitulská Street, or to the castle. However, today we will take you to the historic cemetery located near the newly built shopping and administrative center of the city or the popular Medical Garden.
In the southwestern part of Slovakia, beyond the capital Bratislava, there is the sunniest village in the landscape - Ivanka u Dunaje. In terms of population, it is the second largest municipality in the Senec district, the Bratislava region, and even belongs to the top five most numerous municipalities in Slovakia. Accept the invitation for a short walk through their sights and picturesque nooks.
On a sunny day, we took a short walk in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. We chose to visit one of its landmarks, the memorial on Slavin.
One of the most densely populated areas in Slovakia and even in the Central Europe has several unusual natural nooks. One of them is forest Stary Haj, that was declared protected landscape area. To this very forest we go today.
During the Night in the Museum event our staff visited Slovakian Museum of Technology – the Traffic Museum in Bratislava. It is located in the compounds of the rails of the first steam train station in Bratislava built in the 19th century.
Recently, unique Dinosaurium exhibition welcomed its first visitors, and our team was there. The exhibition is one of the largest collections of dinosaur skeletons in the world.
At the beginning of September by bike we went toe explore Slovakian-Austrian-Hungarian borderline. The beginning of our trip was in Petrzalka, the largest housing estate in Slovakia and central Europe as well.
Spring is in full blow, everything around starts to be green, and also people living in the capital are increasingly leaving their homes, rather run away from the office, or instead of very long wandering in the shopping centres, which often visited and so unnecessarily, seek refuge in awakening nature.
Bike – a simple machine on two wheels; we decided to use it during our summer vacation to explore beauties of nature, history of various places and last but not least to get fitter. Come with us to this unusual bike trip, which starts at the largest housing development, Petrzalka, and ends in Wolfsthal, a picturesque Austrian village.
Petrzalka is the largest and densest district in Bratislava, also it is the largest housing development in central Europe. Many called it a “concrete jungle” in the past, however, today there is not only vast greenery but also several interesting natural sights located just among houses or nearby.
In the last article of our bike trip we move from the largest baroque castle compound in Austria, Schloss Hof, across new Bikebridge of Liberty, to the city districts of Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava.
Even this year, we spent some summer days on our bikes. As we live in Petrzalka, this area of blocs of flats is the point from where we start our trips.
Bratislava - the capital of Slovakia. Its most famous landmarks - Bratislava castle, Slavin, St. Martin's church, the SNP bridge and its UFO, and many other cultural and historical sights are very well-know to Slovaks even though they often even have not seen them.
Not long ago we visited silent part of Bratislava near the historic center. It is not visited very much by tourists. Inhabitants of Bratislava, however, love this location. Today we continue along the Hlboka Road. We will visit the Church of Our Lady of the Snows situated right above the Lurdska Cave.
Are you sick of learning about historic and cultural landmarks? Or just wandering about without a goal in Bratislava’s nooks hiding places of unique atmosphere? Do you have enough of smog and you would go somewhere in nature instead? We have a perfect tip for you! Join us in tour of Horsky Park located almost in geographic center of Bratislava!
Bratislava is the capital and the largest city in Slovakia. The Danube flows through this city. Five bridgest (well, technically four today as the Stary Bridge is being disassembled only to be replaced with a new one). The most interesting si the SNP bridge built in the 20th century. There are couple of distributaries going to nowhere yet surrounded with riparian forests. Bratislava borders two countries – Hungary and Austria.
Many interesting places not frequented by holidaymakers are in the Small Carpathians. These are mostly hills with beautiful vistas to the surroundings that lure tourists to climb them. Vapenna Hill is one of the three highest peaks in the Small Carpathians and it offers beautiful vistas as well.
When a Slovak hear the word chamois s/he first thinks of an animal which lives in the mountains. The other thing is a TV tower above the Slovakian capital. We are going to visit this sight today.
