With canoes on the Danube

August 21, 2018

What an experiencing – canoeing as a catamaran from Hainburg to Bratislava on the Danube. Excellent beaches along the ride and the confluence of the Morava River into the Danube in the vicinity of the Devín castle, is simply awesome. At one point you see both Devín and Bratislava castles. Magnificent! A few more shots >>>

Šamorín, a charming Slovak town 15 kilometers southeast of Bratislava, located on the Danubian flat on Žitný island (the biggest river island in Europe). The name of the town is derived from the patron saint of the local church Sancta Maria. The X-bionic sphere out there is also worth a visit.

Marianka

August 15, 2018

Marianka, the oldest pilgrimage site in Slovakia and the first pilgrimage route dedicated to Virgin Mary in the area of the former Hungarian Kingdom, is a sacred place to spend a day around. The Gothic style church with later Baroque additions, all the chapels around and the beautiful nature make one feel like in heaven. Happy holiday to all, today!
