Nitra

November 5, 2018

Nitra, a charming city, situated at the foot of Zobor Mountain, is one of the oldest cities in Slovakia (dating back to the 9th century). The city has a wealth of historic structures. A stroll on a beautiful autumn day around Nitra Castle, the archeological museum and the old town, is quite an experience.

Bibiana

October 29, 2018

A fairy tale place not only for kids, but for adults, too. Bibiana – an interactive gallery institution in Bratislava supporting the development of illustration works for children and literature in Slovakia and abroad. Knowledge, books, interactions – learning through play and having fun.

Czechoslovakia 100

October 28, 2018

I find Google’s regional Doodles always inspiring. The 100th anniversary from the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918  (the Czechs struggling against their Austrian rulers and the Slovaks against the  Hungarian ones) is a good occasion for celebrating together.

Music weekend

October 21, 2018

Different genres of music transform the mind into different spaces. After the serene Etudes of the Future of vibrant Wien, Sunday was emotional with Juan Polvillo’s Experiencia Flamenca (Teatro Wüstenrot). Some music genres are about technique, others about emotion. All touching the soul in different ways. Hola!

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, music must be in the ear of the listener.

Dmitry Sherman – art photography

October 7, 2018

What people who create things of value have in common is their passion for what they do. A small art spot on Panská 17 in Bratislava with an interesting story itself, CT art gallery (the name comes from the “compress time” technique), hosts unique artists.

When was the last time you saw a classic white photography, processed the traditional way? In the period  7 Oct. – 4 Nov. 2018 you may do so at the said gallery and enjoy the art photography of Dmitry Sherman, a graduate of the Moscow Architecture Institute.

Photography. Carpe diem. This very moment. Now … Continuum … Eternity.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, art is in the soul of the artist.

Driny cave

October 2, 2018

Nature’s wonders are endless. Almost all stalagmite and stalactite formations have a way of triggering one’s imagination. This Babel Tower 🙂 in the picturesque Jaskyňa Driny (Malé KarpatyWest Slovakia) is no exception.
