SK, Bratislava – Rusovce Nature Trail
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.
Rusovsky Park at the church proves our point. Then there is Drienkovy forest and Rusovske lake. Most of the places mentioned belong to Dunajske Luky Protected Nature Area. Today we visit Rusovska nature trail . It is not long yet it goes through quiet places and by interesting natural sights.
The nature trail goes along the edge of the borough. The so called Rusovsky waterway goes along it. Information boards along the way introduce local biotope to the visitors. Also, it provides information on fauna, flora or the history of the borough. Should you travel by bike take a turn on EuroVelo 6, an international trail which goes along the Danube dam. Should you use public transportation there are two options for you. The first one starts in the borough’s center and goes toward St Mary Magdalene church and than to Gerulata. There you have to go down the street of the same name to a wooden bridge over the Rusovsky waterway. The other option is a forest trail which begins at Rusovskym mansion. We chose the latter option.
At first we walked through Rusovsky park. Later we walked through a forest park where huge platan trees grow. There we discovered a place of reverence. Nearby is a lake. For a while we enjoyed the place. A few minutes later we reached the trail. It is 766 meters long. It takes about forty five minutes from start to finish. The trail was opened in 2008. We hiked along gravel road with tree trunks lining it sides. Unfortunately, decaying boards, damaged benches and decaying bordering was a sad view. Still, it was apparent that the trail is being cared for (there were many garbage sacks ready to be taken away).
Except some unpleasant sights of current state of the mansion the walk was wonderful which was also given by blossoming flowers, water and birds. It made nature alive. Spring vegetation was in stark contrast to red fruits of some kind of bush. The scenery was fabulous. We met only several people along our way. There was even a woman with a stroller. All, us included, enjoyed relax in the nature. You should do something like this as well. So go to the nearest park to recharge your batteries and forget about everyday stress.

With its area of 2052.6 km², the Bratislava Region is the smallest of all regions of Slovakia. As for natural or historically valuable places, it certainly does not lag behind others.
We continue in our walks through green spots of Bratislava even today. We will visit only recently opened Waterworks Garden. The garden is located nearby the Danube River in Karlova Ves city borrough.
There are many historical, natural and cultural sights in the Slovakian capital. We see one such a gem today. It won’t be just one single sight or a natural reserve. It is going to be a whole neighborhood.
Bratislava is the capital and the largest city in Slovakia. The Danube flows through this city. Five bridgest (well, technically four today as the Stary Bridge is being disassembled only to be replaced with a new one). The most interesting si the SNP bridge built in the 20th century. There are couple of distributaries going to nowhere yet surrounded with riparian forests. Bratislava borders two countries – Hungary and Austria.
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.
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.
In Dunajska Streda district situated about 40 kilometers southeash from Bratislava, there is Gabcikovo town. The first document declaring its existance comes from 1102. In the town, there is a chateau with towers, or St Margarita Roman Catholic church constructed in 1397.
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.
Bratislava - the capital of Slovakia. Its most famous landmarks - Bratislava castle, Slavin, St. Martin's church, the SNP bridge and its UFO, and many other cultural and historical sights are very well-know to Slovaks even though they often even have not seen them.
When a Slovak hear the word chamois s/he first thinks of an animal which lives in the mountains. The other thing is a TV tower above the Slovakian capital. We are going to visit this sight today.
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.
The unique SNP bridge and its noticeable structure on top resembling a flying saucer is one of the most popular and most photographed landmarks in Bratislava. Today it naturally belongs to the city, however, this wasn’t always true.
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.
Cyclists capital of Slovakia, and not just those, are happy from the recently opened bridge between urban parts of Děvínská Nová Ves and Austrian municipalities Schlosshof. The bridge is built on the site where in the times of Maria Theresa used to stand his predecessor. Our portal Infoglobe was also at the opening ceremony.

People spend their free time usually on hills skiing, drinking hot beverages at Christmas fairs or just sitting at home watching TV. This time we would like to invite you to the museum.
