Today we go to the foot of the Little Carpathians, more precisely to the village Jablonica, which boasts a Baroque church of St. Štěpán Král and other sacral monuments. In addition, a yellow tourist sign leads from the center of this picturesque village, which connects to several attractive marked trails. Gradually we set out to the locality of Dúbrava, Lipový vrch to the local part of Cerová-Rozbehy, where we stop at a low but magical lookout tower, then we will continue to the ruins of the Korlátka castle.

We will go for the beauties of sacral monuments even today. This time we will visit the village of Čáry in the northern part of the Záhorská lowland. It is located in the valley of the river Myjava, about 22 km from the district town Senica. It is adjacent to the important pilgrimage town of Šaštín-Stráže or the village of Gbely, a famous oil field.
Slovakia is a country that is characterized not only by beautiful nature, but also by a number of sacred monuments. It is a pity that they are overlooked by the number of tourists who come here. Therefore, I decided that at least in this form I will acquaint visitors to the villages of Boleráz and Klčovany with these monuments, their significance and the reason for the settlement.
Ghosts at Bojnice Castle, the spirit of Likava Castle or the treasure at Hrušov Castle. Take the children to Slovak castles and chateaux and introduce them to the history in an interesting way. Only recently did the second part of the Slovak trilogy on children's exploration of castles see the light of day - the attractive publication "Castles for Children".
Today we take you to the mouth of the Small Carpathian mountains to the town of the name of Jablonica.

The ruin of Ostry Kamen castle stood once as a guardian of the so called Bohemian Road. The ruin is near Bukova, Trnava country. Its history isn’t as deep and as rich as in case of other castles nevertheless it is a popular place for tourists to see. And we went there as well.
Fabulously beautiful Smolenice castle now serves as the congress centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, and so many people think it is closed to the public. It is not like that.
