We're going gourmet this year: expect our output on where to eat/drink out to increase dramatically (quirky places only mind)! And because we like you to sleep well - and wackily: more features on some of Slovakia's more interesting hotels.
PLUS Lots of suggestions for getting out exploring a wilderness of mountains and forests.
AND what happens if you wake up one morning in London and decide, impromptu, to take the train all the way across the EU to Slovakia!

That last post reminded me of another I meant to write a few months ago. I’d been shopping, as I remember (not at one of the big malls because I detest them) and fancied a stroll near the city centre. … Continue reading
Approach is everything. With Bratislava, you have several means at your disposal. By road from Vienna isn’t bad: after all, out of the flat eastern Austrian farmland rears the forested hills of Devínska Kobyla and the otherworldly Communist-era tower blocks … Continue reading
Like the Tower of London, like the Eiffel Tower, the thing that puts you off wanting to go to Kamzík, the big TV tower/mast standing sentinel over the hills above Bratislava is that it is, perhaps, too obvious. There is admittedly not much … Continue reading
Perhaps I would make a good pilgrim. There is no other real reason (excepting madness) to explain why, on an icy Saturday when the snow out in the countryside was still almost knee-deep and most roads – let alone … Continue reading

Before I wax lyrical about one of my favourite ranges of hills and forests (the Small Carpathians, or Malé Karpaty) too much more on this blog it’s probably necessary to give you some context. So here we go. In terms … Continue reading
The sultry March weather in Bratislava continues, and the yearning for countryside escapes grows in proportion. Last Friday we yet again found ourselves heading out to explore one of the many outdoor adventures in close proximity to the city. This … Continue reading
We’ve talked a bit in posts about the countryside around Bratislava: the rearing Carpathian forests of the Mestské Lesy to the north and the wooded trails stretching southeast along the River Danube. On the very first day of spring Englishmaninslovakia set … Continue reading
This isn’t my first post about the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum (see this post for an example of the type of stunning exhibitions they get here). And, given that a trip here is possibly the best thing to do in … Continue reading
This is, as near as dammit, the view from a pension (guesthouse) that is long overdue on this blog. That’s right: Zlata Noha (which translates as golden leg). Golden leg refers to their dog, but I digress. Bratislava has hills: … Continue reading
