Tips for trips
In the south of Bohemia (about 17 kilometers away from Jindrichuv Hradec) where beautiful nature meets romance there is one fabulous place Cervena Lhota which is a water castle. It is situated on a small rock island in the middle of a pond. Only the stone bridge connects it with the land.
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.
Its unique defense mechanism allowed it to quickly flood moats around the castle and also turn dirt into mud. The castle drained water from the Uhlava and therefore Svihov became basically impenetrable fortress. Let’s see this unique and greatly designed structure, well at least what has remained of it. Yet it is still awesome.
The capital of Austria is full of attractions interesting for tourists. The Natural History Museum is one of them. Former residence of the Habsburgs is where the museum resides today – Hofburg palace complex.
