Danubiana

January 21, 2018

Danubiana – the youngest museums of modern art is on the edge of a peninsula in the vicinity of Bratislava. The River Danube has lent the museum its name and the rest is the result of the enthusiasm and initiative of the Slovak gallery owner Dr. Vincent Polakovič and the Dutch collector and art patron Gerard H. Meulensteen. The place is a unique symbiosis of works of art, modern architecture and nature.

Be Free Tours Bratislava

January 14, 2018

What makes a city even more charming on a freezing winter day is when you walk through it with a charming and knowledgeable guide – in my case this was Lucia Ertlova from Be Free Tours Bratislava.

Getting to know the history and sights of any place is great, but getting to know the people is even greater. It was an amazing walking adventure. Can’t wait to do more such tours around this fascinating city of many faces. Big thanks, Lucia! Big thanks, Bratislava! Ďakujem!


Blue Church

January 1, 2018

The chimes of St. Elizabeth Church, commonly known as the Blue Church (Modrý kostolík) are amazing to start the New Year with. Awesome blue façade, mosaics and blue glazed roof. Dominant interior colour – blue. The Blue Church!

 


Prievidza

December 31, 2017

Prievidza is a city in central-western Slovakia. The city’s name probably comes from the Slovak’s word vidieť – to see, “previdieť” – to see through, thus “the village which can be seen from all directions”. Seeing the old year out and the new year in with amazing fireworks. Happy 2018!

Happy 2018!
