Eastern Europe & Russia
Teplicka nad Vahom
… Banska Bystrica is a beautiful town. The hills surrounding the town are quite scenic and the main square is a traditional medieval European square. The town is very walkable and there are many restaurants within the town square to grab food or a pint of beer.
It's a small and cosy city, beautiful, and with a "village" essence. Things are very cheap! It's small so everything is reachable by a short walk! There are nice Slovakian people! There's not enough party -- even
inhabitants say their city is really boring! I would recommend visiting the city, though.
My tip for
would be to take your time looking around the city and enjoy the cafe culture of the city. The old castle deserves a walk up to as well as the oldest church in Bratislava - looks creepy though!! I found the food to be very good while the prices are amoung some of the lowest in Central Europe.
is indeed a rather dull, boring city -- becoming more and more like a non-place inhabited and frequented by people who found a new religion called consumerism. Not to mention the "Partyslava" tourists and expats who would vote for this city.
Everyone should come to
once in a lifetime if only to remind yourself how lucky you are to live in the West.
is a great little city. It's extremely compact, and it's full of people relaxing and drinking in outdoor cafes. Good luck finding good accommodation though...
