    Seating in Presov

    Favorite thing: The main street of Presov is one of the most interesting I have wandered around in a historic city centre.
    First, was the architecture of the buildings, a real mix of different styles, yet they all blended together quite nicely! There was plenty of stucco work and decorations of religious figures, Eagles and even modern bronze statues sitting on balconies. The old Burgher houses were painted in quite bright colours and looked fantastic.
    I ventured in the small city park, and found the seating had some kind of cat on the arms.
    Interesting bits and pieces seem to jump out at me where- ever I went. The town looked even prettier as the Spring blossom was out, and the Magnolia and other trees were in full flower.
    I loved walking around this amazing main street of Presov.

    SGRAFFITO IN THE MAIN STREET OF PRESOV

    Main street sgraffito

    Favorite thing: Remember to look upwards as you walk the main street of Presov, because it was here, I found many example of sgraffito decoration peculiar to eastern Slovakia. One such building had half bodies of people, were they famous people, I should think so but haven't been able to find out any more. More sgraffito is scattered through-out the city.

    Fondest memory: My friends in Presov didnot show me only their beautiful town, churches, theatre, etc, but also the foodspeciallities and drinks.
    Their many sorts of beer are the best in the world, but they have also special spirits and liquors: Borovicka, Slivovica, Myslivecka and Becherovka. Myslivicka is a hunter-liquor; Becherovka has a very special taste and when you have stumachache: Becherovka is even a good medicin. That's why I take it as precaution together with a bottle of beer. In Netherland it is hardly to get, but I have it always on stock, thanks to my Slovakian friends.

    Fondest memory: You know now, that Becherovka is a liquor-speciallity, but there are also bonbons filled with Becherovka and sugar, like rum-bonbons.
    Enlarge this picture to see the bonbons.
