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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Do you lile beautiful views of the Tatra countryside? If so, you can look forward to a new publication by Dajama Publishing House, which elaborates on beautiful views from a selection of lookout towers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Among the most famous dominants of the Slovak capital includes the New Bridge with a panoramic restaurant on the top of the bridge pillar. A little bit shorter tradition has a viewing platform above the restaurant, to which we will visit this time.
Autumn is the period of culminating works in the fields, orchards and vineyards as well. Right to the one of the typical wine-growing communities in the vicinity of Bratislava we are visiting today.
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.
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.
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.
One of the most densely populated areas in Slovakia and even in the Central Europe has several unusual natural nooks. One of them is forest Stary Haj, that was declared protected landscape area. To this very forest we go today.
