Starozámocká 40/10, 969 01 Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia
Within Banská Štiavnica, there are two castles. Starý Zámok (Old Castle) is by far the most interesting with it's Medieval architecture, artifacts, and great view of the city. We came across this room of statues as we explored the interior, and I...
Aleja Slobody 2686, 026 01 Dolný Kubín, Slovakia
I was impressed with the vast selection of rolls. It made me go on a heavy hunt to find anything remotely close to this back in Chicago. I just love how it seems to be a large variety of interesting food in Europe.
Rudnayovo námestie 1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Standing in Bratislava since 1452, the cathedral is a historic centerpiece of Bratislava and of Eastern Europe. During the Ottoman Empire days when Hungary was conquered, St. Martin's Cathedral became the coronation church for Hungarian kings.

The Mala Lučivna area is mainly known for skiing, hunting, and all things "outdoors". While strolling, we came across this quaint little house on the road. Not sure if it's someone wealthy, or someone "off the grid". It did make for a nice scene.
969 01 Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia
Banská Štiavnica might have some of the charm (and less tourists) of a city like Prague, but it's mining that put this smaller city on the map. The might is a must-see if you're in Banská Štiavnica. It's dark, cold, and wet, but it's a full...
Ľudmily Podjavorinskej, 934 05 Levice, Slovakia
Sitting in the small town of Levice is this Medieval Castle. Its place in history stems mainly as a fortitude that helped keep the Turkish Empire from expanding into Central Europe. Today it's merely a museum with a wonderful tea shop on the side....

No this is not a product placement. On vacation, my soon to be brother-in-law introduced me to Radler, which is a mixture of a lager or pilsner with lemon soda. I fell in love with it and even love it in cold weather. Bažant Radler is a popular...
027 41 Oravský Podzámok, Slovakia
This might look like a scene out of a Peter Jackson movie, but it's a beautiful castle sitting high on a hilltop. One famous piece of trivia is that many scenes for the famous silent film "Nosferatu" were filmed here. If you can get a chance to...
Most Apollo, Bratislava, Slovakia
As you stroll the new Danube promenade, you'll see this modern bridge. Often overlooked for the more famous Bridge SNP, this structure was opened in 2005 and named after an old oil refinery that used to be situated between the Old Bridge and the...

If the High Tatras are a bit too high in altitude for your skiing trip or nature walk, then check out the mountains of Vrátna Dolina. We went in the summer, and I'll forewarn you to take a jacket. Yes down on the ground you'll be warm, but the...
