2. Picnicking at the oldest hotel

4. Waking up with a glass of wine

Ostrožovič, Tokaj

The land of the world is large and infinite. You wander through it day and night and you have to think carefully about how big a bite you want to taste. You can’t do it all the first time. Being christened by the morning dew, somewhere in a three-man tent, certainly has its charms, but how about trying waking up with sweet nectar in your mouth. The sky in your mouth will immediately behave differently when you moisten it with the luscious drink, Wake up in a big room with a glass of wine. Taste how kings used to get up. This is a privilege you’ll only experience in the Tokaj. “Vinum regum, rex vinorum.”

5. Rub yourself with chocolate

Thermal park Šírava, Zemplínska šírava

Since the inception of time, the ancestors have been attracted by the hot springs that have pushed their way to the surface of the earth from its depths. They healed their aches and pains, corrected their health, and those who had time enjoyed the gifts of thermal water. They pampered themselves until the spring dried up or until someone locked it up with their infinite greed. Fortunately, even today the beneficial effects of hot water are pushing their way to the surface. And as science marches forward by leaps and bounds, a good home will take care of your shell, too. Just like on the wide Šírava, where just before you get into the duvet, they’ll rub you down with chocolate. Spoil yourself and know that it’s not just like that. Chocolate lowers blood pressure, heart attack risk, regulates cholesterol, and also inhibits blood clots. Additionally, it is an expression of love, care and gratitude. We’ll leave it up to you which tub you scoop into and what kind of dream you have after such a treatment.
