Along the way I often stopped at a small buffet for a special syrup-sweetened tea and a typical Slovak waffle bar or boiled sausage with mustard and bread. Sometimes it was possible to find mushrooms in the forest, too. Nowadays when I want to spend some time in nature, I usually go with a friend or a colleague to a shelter for unwanted dogs and help out by taking one or two of the dogs for a walk. We pass a large shoping centre and in 15 min. we find ourselves in a forest with nice creek and several ponds. Small "euroarboretum" introduces us to the topic of forests in Europe. We take a small refreshment in a buffet and continue our walk around three ponds with carp fishes. On the way we stop by a bunker from the WWI. You will see the traces of local fauna, listen to the songs of the birds ... Would you like to share this experience with me and see where Bratislava locals go to jog, have barbeques, paddle small boats on lakes in summer and even ski in winter? I’d be very happy for you to join me :-)

I am a true socialistic guy born in 1975. I have been raised partially in socialistic system and followed my secondary and university education in the freshly capitalistic 90´s. I am keen on 20 th century history and changes. I passed exams for a tour guide in 1995 but I really started to guide tourists just in 2014 when I decided to change a little bit my carrier. It has already been five years since my German Shepherd passed away and went to dog heaven. I used to walk him nearly every weekend in local recreational areas.
