Today we invite you to a tour of the parish Roman Catholic Church of St. Vincent located on Tomášikova Street in the town of Ružinov. It is a modernist sacral building consecrated in September 2000 by Archbishop Ján Sokol. The church is dedicated to a French priest who sacrificed his life to poor, old or sick people. Saint Vincent de Paul was the founder of the Missionary Society, whose priests and monks are known as Lazarists and Vincentians.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
