There are 4 main pillars of Karpaty car trip. Nature, History, Ceramics and Wine. And 3 main cities. Svätý Jur, Pezinok and Modra, where we will experience them. I pick you up with my nice old car, and we start with the Nature. We will go to Modra-Piesok, into the heart of Karpaty, to take a short hike to the Velka Homola lookout tower, to see Karpaty in its full beauty. It should take about 2 hours. After Nature, we will go to the city centre of Modra to experience the Ceramics, in this important and beautiful old city, in one of the small local workshops. (It is possible to make a reservation ahead, and try to make some own pottery!) And also possible to visit the (not easy to enter) old Evangelical Church,and the City Tower! After Modra, we go to Pezinok to Schaubmar Mill, where History and Art meets. Its an technical wonder, old water mill that still works, and also a gallery of modern art. And lastly, in our small city of Svaty Jur, we will experience the world of Wine, in some of the local wine cellars. (We can of course experience wine at any time, anywhere, but its nice to finish the day with a glass of wine). And after this, we drive back to Bratislava :))
There is a lot to see in Bratislava, but even more outside of it. Especially in my city Svätý Jur, but also in whole Karpaty area. My passion is history and nature, and also meeting new people and showing them the beauty of our country. I myself am not an expert,just an enthusiast, but when I start talking, it´s hard to stop me :D I want to create a customized day that involves wine tasting,good food,visiting a castle, or maybe just being quiet in the forest or a vineyard. We can move around on foot, or bike, or with my old peugeot(ka). :D In Karpaty you can experience forests,vineyards,lakes,even a desert! Yes! It all depends on a wish of our guests and the season. There are many options.
I might provide some genius local snacks (Bratislavske rozky), if they are available.
I will bring with me some beverages, in case of cold weather, also some hot tea! During the car tour, we will take a break…
