Tips for trips
Last week we started our tour in the historical core of Liptovsky Mikulas, the alleged entrance gate to the Liptov Region. Despite bad weather, we saw many sights and places we tell you about today.
Today we continue in our journey across the Moravian Karst. We have explored the Katerinska Cave and returned to Skalni Mill. Then we took an asphalt road towards the bottom station of the cable car. The cable car was supposed to take us up to the famous and popular Macocha Gorge.
Couple of kilometers from Liptovsky Hradok, a town we saw last week, there is Liptovsky Mikulas – a district town, social and cultural center of the Liptov region. Today we take a tour in this town.
We had paid our visit the House of Nature once we reached Skalni mill, a locality near Blansko district town, also thought about as the entrance to the Moravian Karst. We had also seen some of its surrounding. The trail going to the Katerinska cave is right behind this recently opened exhibition.
The town 10 kilometers away from Balaton’s northwestern bank. It is known for its spas and thermal lake Heviz. All nature that loves warm environment and muddy bedrock found its home here and it also gives some space to the men. Wine grows here great. Egregy hill with vineyards and private vine cellars proves it.
After our visit in Kalameny village we remain in the Liptov region. We move couple of kilometers to the smallest town of Liptov. It is rich, however, on natural, cultural and historical sights. The town we talk about is Liptovsky Hradok.
Once we introduced you the new interactive exhibition in the Moravian Karst Nature House we move bit further. Today we talk about our starting locality which is called Rocky Mill. This one is unique for many reasons.
Liptov region hides many attractive localities to visit. Should you be fans of skiing or hikes then there are beautiful mountains for you. Water enthusiasts can have fun at water-parks. On the other hand, history enthusiasts can go and see places such as Liptovsky Mikulas, Ruzomberok etc.
In the middle of a surface mine territory and brown coal, there is an oasis of peace, a fabulous place – Bernard Homestead. Join us to remember how this place once lived, how animals were raised, and how traditional crafts were performed.
Only couple of days ago, a unique interactive exhibition has been opened in the heart of the Moravian Karst (at the meeting point of Suchy and Pusty Zleb) near Skalni Mill. The exhibition take you through the history of this place in a very innovative way.
Unique region of Horni Nitra offers many places to see, many trips to take. Today, we walk you through attractive localities.
Fall, the most beautiful of seasons, is slowly getting started. Lets visit our neighbors in Lower Austria and introduce their fascinating festival which displays old traditions, parades, and delicious tasting.
Parked cars with Prague license plates at ancient trees is a thing that you would see if you had travelled in summer to Kacerov (15 km from Rychnov nad Kneznou). In the following season, Kacerov becomes a solitary place. I love it for one concrete location – a church and its cemetery.
Three very popular place are scattered across the hills looming above the center of Marianske Lazne. You can get there either by following a nature trail, by cable car or by car. These places are: the Czech scaled sights park, Hamelika observation tower, and fairy-tale characters in the garden in front of Krakonos hotel.
In the Slatina River valley, about 14 kilometers from Zvolen, there is the village of Viglas and above, the castle Viglas stands proudly. It is this castle we decided to visit during our trip across Slovakia.
If you hike in less known and popular localities with less tourists to meet instead of picking places that look good in some travel brochure, than the place which is matter of today’s article is the best for you. Make a trip to Horni Castle which is near Straze nad Ohri.
Last week, we concluded our article while at the beginning of the new bike trail Jurava. In its proximity, the Nature Reservation of Sur is located. It is also called Jursky Sur. It was hard to resist temptation not to turn off our trail. We eventually did so to admire unique marshland.
With our camcorder we move to Spisske Podhradie town. Above on a cliff lures one of Slovakia’s largest castle compounds – Spissky Castle. The castle is actually administered by Zehra despite Spisske Podhradie is sort of an entrance gate to the castle. This is one of many interesting facts you will learn in this article.
Silence, peace, humbleness… breeze plays with trees lined in alley. A place of peculiar energy which expects everybody who goes there. It is only couple of kilometers near Kladno.
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.
Lets join us for a hike in Slovakian Karst’s beautiful valley between Hajsky Hill and Miglinc. There, Haj, a small village is located. You can travel there to Zadielska plain which is nearby or to Turnansky castle. Today, we visit another sight – Hajske waterfalls and cascades.
It is not much long since we have visited the town of Svit, famous for its Bata brick houses. Then we said that we would like to return here. This summer it happened. Instead of exploring the town we set off in the nature.
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.
A small town surrounded with hop gardens in the Central Bohemian Uplands. It has fantastic atmosphere. This is Ustek. Filmmakers love its authenticity as well as the ruin of castle Helfenburk.
After a day in Herlany, we drove on the E58 road to Orechova, Sobrance district. We planned some winetasting and a trip to Morske Oko, which we did on the day after. How it all went you can read in this article.
