My of my favorite places to go in Slovakia is Kosice. It was different coming there in the winter verses the summer, but it was still so beautiful.
When in Kosice I fell like I'm in the heart of Europe. There is a beautiful cathedral that is huge and it's very old. I also love the Oprah house with it's beautiful singing fountain that you can play in during the warm summers. My favorite ice cream parlor is walking distance from Stara Mama's flat. In the summer the square is filled with outdoor dinning and in the winter is the Christmas Bazaar with lots of hot wine.
I guess when I'm in Kosice I feel like I belong there where as in Nitra I just feel like I'm home since it's where my in-laws live. There's a big difference between these two cities and one being Kosice is much bigger. It's the second biggest city in Slovakia Bratislava being the first.
While we were in Kosice we got to visit yet another castle called, "The beautiful Hill" if I remember right. I'm really excited to go back to Slovakia and hopefully visit Italy again, but in the summer this time. They have warm and beautiful summers except for the tics.
