Stary Haj in Petrzalka is a green oasis in the middle of the largest housing estate in Slovakia. It is a forest where birds sing in the trees, squirells play in its benches, bugs work in grass. All of this is surrounded by beautiful flora such as Allium Ursinum or dandelion. A forest full of life. But threre is also a small path and nooks that will provide you with a relief of hectic life. This is just one way how you can describe Stary Haj.

The capital of Slovakia received a new and interesting book about it which has recently reached the bookshelves. The perspective on Bratislava is from record breaking facts on the city.
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.
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.
Lovers of walks and tourist enthusiasts can look forward to a completely new and at the same time unique mobile application that will take you to many unknown places in the Bratislava Forest Park using an interactive map.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today we will introduce you to a learning-savvy social game Do You Know the World? and the unique book Bratislava for Children (Bratislava for Kids), where you can find the most beautiful trips. If you read the following lines, you will find that you will also be able to win the game and the book.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
One Saturday in March, we set out to exploring our capital, Bratislava. We had learned that it has a new landmark. It is devoted not only to tourists from abroad, but mostly to locals. The attraction is the so-called Street of Light.
If you are one of those who love mountain biking, it is almost unnecessary to introduce you to a low about 100 kilometers long mountain ridge of the Male Karpaty. Mostly people of Bratislava and western Slovakia relax there, but also seek adrenaline to clear their heads and make them forget worries of everyday life.
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.
The unique SNP bridge and its noticeable structure on top resembling a flying saucer is one of the most popular and most photographed landmarks in Bratislava. Today it naturally belongs to the city, however, this wasn’t always true.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Families with children, individuals, sports enthusiast… all can ride a bike on field roads, mountain roads, or bike trails. This way they get some fresh air during hot summer days and help their personal health. In case you miss determination or inspiration for some kind of similar adventure, then go on with this text. Soon you will mount your bike.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
People spend their free time usually on hills skiing, drinking hot beverages at Christmas fairs or just sitting at home watching TV. This time we would like to invite you to the museum. Not long ago there has been opened an exposition. We think, you can look forward to seeing it. We can guarantee that.
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.
