NATURE WALKS, ANIMAL WATCHING, HISTORY AND GASTRONOMY
Topoľčianky is a small town, yet it offers many diverse attractions. Choose your route and day, the rest you will find on the spot.
You can start, for example, in its park, where you will find hidden small lakes, peacocks and meadows perfect for walks or picnics. In the same chateau you can also have a meal or a thirst-quencher.
The bison preserve
There are not many places in Slovakia where you can observe these majestic and powerful animals in the wild. One of them is located not far from Topoľčianky. However, be prepared to leave your car at the entrance and a short, easy walk will take you to the bison themselves. If you have younger children, take them for example a bicycle or a bicycle.
National Stud Topoľčianky
The National Stud Farm is famous for breeding Lipizzaner horses, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the meantime. You can visit the historic riding stables on weekend afternoons. Be sure to check the calendar of events before your trip.
It is one of the largest wineries in Slovakia. Its tradition dates back to 1723 and you can taste their wines either during smaller tasting events or during the big wine festivals in spring and autumn. Typical for this winery are especially the varieties of green Veltliner, white Riesling, pinot blanc, blue franc or pinot noir.
Scooters from Hrušov Castle
From Topoľčionky you can take an easy route to Hrušov Castle, which offers a nice view of the whole surrounding area. Volunteers are constantly repairing and improving it, it is worth seeing their work. You can go back by the same route, but it is also more fun and faster – for example on scooters.
By the way, on the way to Hrušov Castle you may also be lucky enough to see horses grazing.
If you want to combine experience with gastronomy, visit Trout Paradise, which is just outside Topoľčany. You can catch your own trout, which will then be prepared for you to eat.
