Budapest can be summarized in just one word for me: enchanting. And the nearby artistic Szentendre‘s numerous town museums and contemporary galleries representing the rich traditions of the visual arts, is worth a day walk out there.

Piešťany – a gem of a place for spa tourism about an hour drive from Bratsilava. Its spacious parks inspire you to bicycle or walk all day long.

Trnava – 3 months later

May 7, 2018

The first time I visited Trnava it was cold and wintery. Three months later, spring is here in full bloom. This “Little Rome” will surprise you with majestic views every time you visit there.

St. John the Baptist Cathedral, part of a complex of academical buildings, is the first purely Baroque building built in present-day Slovakia. The interior amazes with its unique paintings.

Between Sky and Earth

May 3, 2018

Margarita Tzvetkova – an inspired and inspiring talent, in love with all that is between Between Sky and Earth. Her camera captures incredible views, various moods and emotions. With captured moments like these, the ethymology of the word “photography” – “drawing with light” makes perfect sense.

Dimitar Pishev

Stephan Komanadarev’s “Directions” (2017) movie tells the stories of six taxi drivers and their passengers, as they move through the night, each in hope of finding a brighter way forward.

A debut role in the movie for the young talent Dimitar Pishev. A master of ceremony, musician or actor, the stage is obviously his place.

“Directions” gives an excellent “diagnosis” of the contemporary Bulgarian society. To Cannes Film Festival review >>>

Epic Hike to Pajštún Castle

April 30, 2018

When spring is in full bloom, a 25 km mountain hike with Green Hat Tours from Rača to Pajštún Castle and Stupava all through the Small Carpathians, is an amazing experience. The greenery all around is stunning and the views – unforgettable.

Michael, the Green Hat guy on the photo, is an experienced mountain guide and you learn a lot of things about the history and the current situation in Slovakia along the way.
