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!

UFO Restaurant

My UFO experience was amazing.  The UFO Restaurant in Bratislava is located on the pillars of the Bratislava New bridge (Nový most). Excellent service, delicious food and priceless views any time – during day and night.

The place to start exploring Bratislava from is here – Welcome to Bratislava – the website has ideas, advice and tips on things to do, see and experience in and around Bratislava, it has everything in there – from best sightseeing attractions to finding a language course.  It is through them that I learnt about the x-mas tram and needless to say, the ride is most enjoyable!
