In the east of Slovakia is located the city of Kosice – like a mirror image of Bratislava in the west. But this city does not look like the capital. The compact historical center, which is located a few hundred meters from the railway and bus station.
Dozens of monuments of architecture are spread over a small square of the Old Town, among them the Gothic Cathedral of Saint Elizabeth, built in the XIV century, a relatively new city theater, the Urbana Tower, where at the moment the exhibits of the Museum of Metal Jewelry are on display. Between the cathedral and the theater, there is a musical fountain – every half an hour or more often classical music plays. An interesting monument is the Plague Column, which was erected in gratitude to God for deliverance from the effects of the medieval plague.

Located on the banks of the Danube, Bratislava cannot fight with Vienna or Budapest for the title of the most beautiful “Danube” city. But this capital has its charm – which is absent in the big metropolitan areas. Bratislava Castle is the most interesting landmark of the city. Looking from the banks of the Danube, it towers over the city and looks majestically at everything around it. In clear weather, the magnificent view of the city opens from the walls of the Bratislava Castle or its towers.

When we talk about the Czech Republic, the first thing that comes to mind is the capital Prague. And many people do not know that a not less beautiful city is situated very close – Brno. If Prague doesn’t exist, this city would the cultural capital of the state. There are several good galleries (“Moravian Gallery”, “G99 Gallery”, “Cultural Center Brno”, “Cabinet”, “At the Good Shepherd”), a mysterious Capuchin monastery, Spilberk castle, Villa Tugendhat. Near the town is the beautiful Slavkov Castle, known as Austerlitz. The famous battle of Austerlitz took place here.

This city is famous primarily because it is the capital of Czech brewing. Here, in every restaurant or pub, you will get the freshest beer, and in the local brewery, you can taste all sorts of this drink.
But not only for this think the city is interesting, it is the 4th largest in the Czech Republic. Plzen is a very beautiful Old Town with a beautiful cathedral and castle. The Pilsen historical underground gives uniqueness – the underground city, which is a system of underground passages and labyrinths. 300-400 years ago, this dungeon served as a huge city cellar and storeroom for food storage, as well as a workshop and shelter. The big plus is that the city is located one hour from Prague.
