Embark on the last autumn walk. This time we will take you to a public park located in Bratislava'sOld Town. The Medická Garden is one of the most popular places in the capital, offering well-kept lawns, flower beds, massive trees, as well as a children's playground, small architecture or a majestic fountain, all surrounded by relatively dense buildings. Not for nothing is it considered an oasis of peace in the bustling heart of the city.

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.
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.
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 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 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 castle looming above Bratislava has four towers and it is hard to miss. Well, it would be a pity not to visit it. If only it was for the view over the city it would be worth it. It really does the city proud after its renovation in 2010. Inside, there are interesting historical exhibitions. Before getting inside, let’s walk up the hill and learn more about castle’s interesting history.
