Michalská 390/22, 811 03 Bratislava, Slovakia
This gate opening once stood as part of a wall surrounding the city of Bratislava (it was a much smaller city of course). Today it's just a lovely piece of historic architecture as you walk through Old Bratislava. My fiance told me that you should...

I've posted an image before of this bridge, but it was on a dismal, cloudy day. On this particular day the sun came out and gave a beautiful vision of Bratislava as we visited the castle. Next trip I will go to the top of the main tower and grab a...

Hviezdoslavova 327/18, 060 01 Kežmarok, Slovakia
Unfortunately, for the life of me, I cannot remember which of the many wooden churches that are located in the northeast of the country this is. I've check but cannot find one that looks like this - probably due to my unusual angle. Nevertheless,...

Na Slavíne, Bratislava, Slovakia
A rather interesting tribute not only to soldiers who fought the Nazis in WWII, but also a bit of a tribute to Communism with it's strong symbolism, stars, and menacing vibe. Surrounded by a beautiful garden and some rather affluent neighbors,...

Kammerhofská 18, 969 01 Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia
Banska Stiavnica is a beautiful little mining town 4 hours by bus from Bratislava. The drive through the forest and winding roads is a treat for the eyes. I wanted to take photos at every turn, but decided to just soak in the view. There are a...

Biely Potok 664, 013 06 Terchová, Slovakia
You’re looking at a fun little trail at Jánošíkove Diery in the town of Terchová in Slovakia complete with rickety bridges and sketchy ladders. If you aren’t from Slovakia, pronouncing the name of this little place can be a tongue twister. If your...
