Towns and places
Places have always been important in people’s lives. Throughout our lives we get to know various places. However, the most important place in our life is our birthplace. We know this place pretty well as it is connected with lots of memories from our childhood, with our parents and siblings and with our friends. This place reminds us of our first boyfriend or girlfriend and time at school. Some of us stay in our birth town forever. Those who have to leave their birthplace for any reason never forget about it and always come back at least for a short visit.

Birthplace is a place where I was born. I was born in Presov. All my life is connected to this town. I have my friends and family there. I go to school there. I spend much of my leisure time there. It is a place where I live, where I feel good. It is a place where I belong to. 

There are many differences between life in the city and life in the countryside. I live in the city. There are many advantages of such a life. There is everything available. There are many cultural and shopping facilities, everything is near. Life in the city is busier. People can go out in the evenings, they can meet with friends. In the city there are also more jobs available. I like living in the city, I have more privacy there. Nobody knows me. I have everything there. On the other hand living in the countryside can also be interesting. People live in beautiful surroundings. They are in nature. There isn’t so much noise, there is a peaceful atmosphere. There are also some disadvantages. People can’t get everything there. There are only few of shops; there use to be only one or two shops for the whole village. There aren’t many cultural facilities too. People have to travel to work because there aren’t many jobs available. Everyone knows you. it could be disagreeable when your neighbours are too curious. They usually poke their noses into what isn’t their business.

We all leave our homes when we travel for holidays. There are many beautiful, surprising, exciting and inspiring places in the world that offer a lot of excitement, possibilities for sightseeing, shopping in luxurious shops, going to restaurants and clubs. The most beautiful cities are Prague, Barcelona, London, New York, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and others. Those people who look for the exotic and relaxation prefer the Hawaiian Islands. To the most beautiful wild places belong the Antarctica, Amazon, Grand Canyon, Canadian Rockies and Sahara.

People like to spend their holiday at different places. It depends on their hobbies, but also on the amount of money they have for their holiday. During their holiday, people can go to:
1. Hot or exotic countries - most people like to go on holiday to hot or exotic countries because there is hot weather and a sea and they can lie on the beach, sunbathe and swim in the sea. For example people like to go to Spain, Egypt, Croatia, Italy, Canary Islands and so on.
2. Sightseeing places - some people don’t want to sunbathe and lie on the beach, but they want to spend their holiday actively. They want to see new things and learn a lot about new countries, people and their customs and traditions. They prefer places like Vienna, London, New York, Paris – they visit museums, galleries, concerts and art exhibitions. For example people go to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, Louvre – there is the picture of Mona Lisa…
3. Mountains – some people like to spend their holiday in the mountains – for example they go skiing to Alps or High Tatras. In summer they go hiking /na turistiku/.
4. At home – some people like to spend their holiday at home. They don’t want to travel and so they stay at home and read a book, watch TV or they just spend time with their family and friends. 
Although Slovakia is not very big country, it has a lot of natural beauties and monuments and sights. Our spas (Piešťany, Trenčianske Teplice, Bardejov, Smrdáky, Lúčky, Sliač, Dudince..) have got high reputation not only in our country. Tourists also like to see our mountains, caves (Dobšinská ice cave, Demänovská dripstone cave), castles (Spiš castle), fortresses (Devín, Bojnice, Topoľčianky Krásna Hôrka, Trenčín).
