We invite you on a trip to the Petržalka lakes, which you will find on the edge of a relatively dense housing estate. In addition to relaxation in the form of swimming, fishing or easy hiking, they also offer beautiful natural scenery. So come with us to Velký and Malý Draždiak with a stop at the nameless lakes, the Dead Arm of Kutlík or at the Díků meadow and discover the last remnants of floodplain forests in Central Europe.

Bike – a simple machine on two wheels; we decided to use it during our summer vacation to explore beauties of nature, history of various places and last but not least to get fitter. Come with us to this unusual bike trip, which starts at the largest housing development, Petrzalka, and ends in Wolfsthal, a picturesque Austrian village.
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.
As winter is coming and cold, rainy, or snowy weather with it, we decided to end biking season by a trip to the Hungarian town of Mosonmagyaróvár. The beginning of our tour was yet again in Petrzalka, a Bratislava borough.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Once we rode on bikes from Petrzalka across the Pristavni Bridge along the Small Danube and across Vrakunsky forest we found ourselves at the airport. From there we will continue to our first place of interest the M. R. Stefanik Memorial.
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.
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.
