Travel Tips for Trnava
The ice-cream was so good and so cheap in Trnava that we feasted on the stuff. It cost 7 SKK for a cone with one scoop (that's about 0.2 Euro). The town places be bought it from were near the town square. One was Radnicka Cukaren on Hlavna, the other was a small shop near the Church of St. James.
Anton Bernolak Statue
Anton Bernolak was very famous person living in this town. He is responsible for cultural development and first serious attempt to codify Slovak language and this priest took the grammar and other linguistic base of the "codified" language from western part of country. It wasn't successful, because most of the Slovaks living in the Central and Eastern part weren't able to understand it properly. Except that he and his companion established Slovenske ucene tovarisstvo what was a kind of companion that released books in this form of language. So, his statue is somekind a dominant of the town easily found near the fortification walls. You also can have a rest in nice park surrounding this statue.
