On the second weekend of October all fans of Infoglobe and Slovakian Paleontological Club decided to learn something about unique geological localities in the area of National Nature Reservation of Devinska Kobyla. The summit of voluntary enthusiasts took part by the paleontological locality of Sandberg. There were conducted short lectures about new, yet still not opened, Sandberg-Pajstun geopark and also about the locality of Sandberg. After an interesting presentation, people received bags for trash around. Then they moved to other locality of no lesser importance, Waituv Quarry. There the second interesting lecture took part. From there, people moved to Bratislava’s borough of Devin. The trash was collected and put on the yeard of local municipality that helped the organizers with the event. The participants helped to cclean nature and learned a lot of new interesting facts as well as enjoyed beauty of this colorful autumn. We present you the event in our photo gallery.
We give thanks also to CIMA company for providing the participants with free cleaning products.

The Male Karpaty mountains is a very beautiful mountain range situated in the west of Sloavkia. There are many interesting paleontological and geological localities in the south of the range. The significance of this area led to foundation of a new Slovak geopark - the Sandberg-Pajstun geopark (SAPAG).
Summer is the period of walks and relax. Pools, parks, or mountains are welcomed shelters from the heat. We went to Bratislava's green oases this time. Locals and tourists alike find there refuge among trees and flowers.
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.
Across historical center of Bratislava we moved to another landmark after we made a beautiful walk along city walls. Our next point of interest is more than 120 years old. Yet it is new.
We crossed the new Old Bridge (the last week's article) and reached Danube's right riverbank, the borrough of Petrzalka. After this beautiful bridge, two beautiful landmarks caught our attention. The first one was the water tower. The other a noise coming from around the riverbank.
We continue in our walks through green spots of Bratislava even today. We will visit only recently opened Waterworks Garden. The garden is located nearby the Danube River in Karlova Ves city borrough.
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.
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.
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.
Since beginning of July 2011, a gate of Bratislava Old Town Hall was open for public again. Within past couple of years, the building undergone complete reconstruction. The Town Hall and its spaces is available for visitors daily, except Mondays.
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.
Slovakia is a beautiful land. We became convinced of this on our one-day trip. We started in a small village of Haluzice near the district town of Nove Mesto nad Vahom.
In the Czech Republic people have their astronomical clock, in Vienna world-famous Cathedral St. Stephen and on the Slovak Republic have their pride, unique blue church, one of the notable attractions of Bratislava.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are many historical, natural and cultural sights in the Slovakian capital. We see one such a gem today. It won’t be just one single sight or a natural reserve. It is going to be a whole neighborhood.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Location Sandberg at Děvínská Nová Ves is one of the places in the neighbourhood of Bratislava, often visited and searched by tourists and inhabitants of this region. Here you can admire the beauty of animate and inanimate nature.
Known and by tourists frequently visited protected paleontological locality of Sandberg at Děvínská Nová Ves a lot Bratislavans definitely know. The sand quarry is a popular destination for tourists as well as residents of the capital city. The reward for visiting the site is a beautiful view to Záhorská lowland, river Morava and Austria with Hainburges hills.
