cez Skalické dni by sme tam mohli spraviť stretávku u burčáku :cheers: Nebol som nikdy v Pezinku na vinobraní, predpokladáma ale že kultúrnym programom a atmosférou by ho Skalické dni prekonali. ;)


Mimochodom Skalica je taký menší slovenský zázrak, okrem historického centra sa tu napríklad darí aj miestnej ekonomike, miestne podniky zamestnávajú ľudí z celého okolia, kuriozitou pre 15000 mesto je asi shopping mall s multikinom (treba ale vziať do úvahy že do 15-20 minút cesty býva vyše 100tisíc ľudí). Kúpna sila obyvateľstva je možno druhá najvyššia hneď po Bratislave.

No a samozrejme, darí sa tu aj hokeju, Žiga asi pozná každý (aj keď v miestnych hospodách nie je veľmi obľúbený, keď ešte hrával v LA, z času na čas dostal cez držku...no drzý bol jak opica, dobre mu tak nech :) )

Greetings from Wroclaw, Poland. Great to see so many historic buildings renovated. Slovak cities look really good. It would be nice to see some photos of Nitra here. Especially that old church in Drazovce (st. Michael's, I believe). Time really seems to have stopped there... simply magic.

Great work Ubertino. I'm very impatient and I'm waiting for updates.:eek:kay:

Unfortunately, Nitra is one of those Slovak cities which were extremely damaged during communism. But, there are still some interresting buildings and sites.

Thx, Ubertino! For new photos, including Nitra and for your opinion about Wrocław as well :) . Lewocza is absolutely breathtaking.

Mariánske námestie in Zilina looks nice too, although it doesn't look "old" at all :) . Maybe because it's renovated so well. And as far I know the side with church behind is partially reconstructed (three buildings were erected there in 1920').

Keep them coming, Ubertino!
