In the outskirts of Slovakian metropolis, an important National Cultural Monument is located. When visiting Bratislava, you would not forget to have a stop also at this spot. Especially during summer months, the visitors will be rewarded with extraordinary outlook, despite the fact that the highest section of the castle is closed for tourists.
Autumn is an ideal time for trips, so we decided to visit a relatively new lookout tower located at the highest point of Děvínská Kobyla in the area of the former missile base. It is accessible from the Bratislava city districts of Děvínská Nová Ves, Děvín and Dúbravka.
Between Devín, Nova Ves of Devín a Dubravka is a unique national nature reserve Devín Kobyla (mare). What distinguishes this from other reservations, and why it is renowned as the best tourist know it? All this we will talk on these lines.
Not every weekend is possible to leave the capital and move to greener and rocky parts of Slovakia. This is exactly why I like to wander in Bratislava. It's nice to visit places that one had no idea they existed.
Many people see the Slovakian capital only when passing by in train, bus, or car while travelling from the Czech Republic to Hungary or vice versa. But it is really worth it to spend a while in the city of half-million on the Danube. Bratislava has changed. It is no longer boring, grey city. It has been gradually removing the damage done by the communist regime and life crawls back to the city.
In Bratislava and surroundings are several extraordinary tourist localities. In the northwestern part of Bratislava there are the Devinske Karpaty region; a popular destination among tourists. It is also great for some sporting activities.
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.
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.
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.
