Czechs are famous for their favourite weekend past time - tending to their summer houses - which are anything from simple sheds, cabin lodges, huts to luxurious chalets - and river sailing. So during one visit in Prague I decided to give it a go and set by a steamboat on Vltava river to Slapy.
Hungarian gastronomy is great. You will find perkelt, "gnocchi", langos, halaszlé, goulash and specialties from goose, duck, sea creatures or even "soups" in a paper cup. It's worth trying.
Ezstergom, a Hungarian city on a southern bank of Danube, connected to Slovakia's Štúrovo by a historical bridge of Maria Valeria from 1895. Ezstergom's old city streets are charming, but the most well known is its basilica atop the hill and a palace owned by Ezsterhazy family, now a museum.
Visegrad is a small Hungarian city often mentioned in the history. A castle from 4th century atop the hill offers magnificent views of river Danube.
Budapest is split into two parts by the Danube river - Buda on the west and Pest on the east - connected by several bridges with the Chain bridge (Lánchíd), Elisabeth bridge (Erzsébet híd) and Independence bridge (Szabadság) being the most interesting.
In the Városliget park there is the zoo, the amusement park, as well as the Széchenyi furdo, and the Vajdahunyad Palace - a mixup of the Gothic and Renaissance architecture. A short walk around the park and the surrounding area is definitely worth it.
From the Royal palace on the Varhegy hill in Budapest, you can take a beautiful pedestrian walkway around the northern side of the hill towards the Matthias Church and the Bastion.

Budapešť je krásna, dýcha tu história, jedlo je skvelé a maďarská kúpeľná kultúra má tiež čosi do seba. Mesto samotné, vrátane nabrežia Dunaja, štvrte s kráľovským palácom a Andrássyho ulica sú zapísané na zozname svetového dedičstva UNESCO od roku 1987.
A beautiful city full of history, good food and wellness culture - that's how I would describe Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is also on UNESCO's World heritage sites list since 1987.
Prague is one of those European cities I have never visited as a tourist. I always joined my local friends living in the city and they showed me around.
Lednice is a small town in south Moravia famous for its beautiful castle surrounded by a large picturesque park with a lake and a minaret.
ZOO and chateau Lešná is located near Zlín in Northern part of Moravia region. The area of the ZOO is large, with hills, forests, grassed areas, water streams, calm gardens and even a castle.
Mountain range Považský Inovec is spreading along the river Váh between cities Piešťany and Trenčín. The area is favourite for hiking.
Kroměříž is a city in the Morava region, north of Brno and Luhačovice. The historical centre of Kroměříž is nice to walk around as well as the Archbishop’s Château, the Flower Garden and the Château Garden, UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.
Abu Dhabi was not only about sun, sea and work, but also food. The city is full of top restaurants with delicacies from almost any cuisine in the world.
Liptovská Mara is the third largest dam in Slovakia. Located in the Liptov region, it is my favourite stop on the way from High Tatras, Jasna, or other road trips in the Liptov region (Bešeňová, Lúčky, Hrabovo, Vlkolínec, Pribylina...).
There is a lot of castles in Slovakia. Some are still standing and open for public visits, others are only ruins, like Beckov . Castle in Trencin belongs to the first category. It is located up on a hill towering over the city and it is visible from almost anywhere. My favourite view is when driving from the sport recreational area on the island or from the highway in the distance.
