Today we invite you for a picturesque walk along a relatively new attraction, a wooden promenade on the Little Danube with a lookout tower, which is situated just a few kilometers from Bratislava, more precisely in the village Zálesie. Then we move to the neighboring village of Malinovo, where we visit a beautiful park, which hides a late Renaissance chateau from the 17th century.

The village of Bernolákovo is located in the western part of the Danubian Lowland, on the floodplain of the Little Danube and the Black Water. Here you will find the magnificent Esterházy Castle, several unique sacral buildings or even the ruins of a medieval castle.
Last week we visited the village of Zálesie, whose main tourist attraction is the wooden promenade on the Little Danube. Today we move to the village of Malinovo (historically Eberhard), where we have a planned walk through the local park.
Take a trip with us. We will go a short distance outside Bratislava, more precisely to the village of Zálesie (historically Gessayov), which offers interesting history, but mainly a natural attraction attracting thousands of visitors.
In Dunajska Streda district situated about 40 kilometers southeash from Bratislava, there is Gabcikovo town. The first document declaring its existance comes from 1102. In the town, there is a chateau with towers, or St Margarita Roman Catholic church constructed in 1397.
The unique combination of vineyards and Mediterranean botany is simply not seen. However, you can easily find this connection in Pezinok, in the Stará hora wine region. We are talking about a unique lavender garden, which attracts hundreds of visitors and wine lovers every year.
The picturesque Small Carpathian town of Pezinok is located approximately 25 kilometers from Bratislava. It is known especially for developed viticulture and long-term brick, construction and engineering production. Thanks to its convenient location, it is an attractive place for family life.
The most amazing historical monument of the town of Pezinok is undoubtedly the Pezinok chateau. It was built at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries as a water castle. And despite several reconstructions, the original appearance of the castle has been preserved. Thanks to this, the Pezinok chateau can be described as an impressive and unique building.
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.
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.
The town of Marianka is located few kilometers from Bratislava, in south Zahorie. People know it mostly as a place of pilgrimage. But we will talk about it as of a mining town or place for easy tourism and biketourism.
Pleasant spring temperatures lure people to spend some time in nature. Very often inhabitants of Bratislava, and not just them, visit the ruins of Pajstun Castle in the Small Carpathians. Today, we will visit it together.
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).
