I’ve been to Slovakia 4 times now and every time I go, there is something new to see. My boyfriend is from Bratislava which is the capital of Slovakia and until this past trip, I had only been there. This time, we drove an hour East to Bojnice to see the beautiful castle and Čičmany, a tiny village in the mountains. Here are the highlights from my week in Slovakia.
I didn’t sleep very much on my over night flight to Vienna so having fried potatoes and wine first thing didn’t really help the situation. We went to a wine festival in Modra and drank burčiak which is young wine. It tastes a lot like hard apple cider. The festival marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of the wine making season.
This is the Hlavné námestie which is the main square in Bratislava. During Christmas time, there is a Christmas market where all the locals come for mulled wine and snacks. This photo was filtered with snapseed my new favorite app!
On the way home, we stopped by a sheep’s farm. My boyfriend’s eyes lit up. He apparently grew up eating unpasteurized dairy products. I let him enjoy his cheese while I had a lovely yogurt. It was delicious but it definitely tasted different than the yogurt you buy at the supermarket.
