VIA GOURMAND

 

Slovaks have always lived together with nature, and respected the customs and traditions of their ancestors. Many customs and traditions have survived. Our culture is inherently connected with traditional Slovak cuisine. You will taste typical Slovak “bryndzovéhalušky” with us. During your stay, tables will be full of traditional food, snacks, desserts and bread. We will wash all that down with first-rate Slovak beer, wine, and we’ll even taste spirits. We cooperate with the best internationally-awarded drink producers. You will “taste” Slovakia with us. Ever eaten cake in a 19th century synagogue? Ever tasted goose? Ever tasted fruit distillates? Then the Via Gourmand programme is made just for you…

Quality food and drinks combined with trips and exploration of our country. We will visit the royal city of Trnava, the wine town of Pezinok, museum of viniculture, Bratislava centre, and walk the Danube waterfront. Look forward to relaxing in healing water at wellness centre.

Our list also includes guided tastings of wine and distillates with a presentation and guided tour of the premises.

You will see traditional ceramic making in Modra, its process and history – from clay to the end product. See how a potter’s wheel works and try it yourself. We’ll also unlock the “secrets” of glazing and decorating.
