BORNHOLM – Danish holiday destination

BORNHOLM – Danish holiday destination

Hey guys! Life has been tough last couple of months, but I finally feel settled here in the north. So expect me to post more regularly now!

Two weeks ago I visited Danish island, Bornholm, with my boyfriend’s family. What a lovely place it is! We went camping, as apparently that’s the thing Danes do, and it was a great experience! Apart from the rain and our worries of waking up in the water, haha. The weather in particular could have been better, as it was rainy and rather cold, not the best summer vacation weather… But we still had a great time!

Ahojte! Posledné mesiace to bolo trošku náročné, ale myslím, že konečne môžem povedať, že som sa tu na severe ako tak usadila. Takže očakávajte pravidelnejšie posty!

Pred dvoma týždňami sme sa s priateľovou rodinou vydali na Dánsky ostrov Bornholm, ktorý ma veľmi príjemne prekvapil. Kempovali sme tam, keďže to je zjavne vec, ktorú tu v Dánsku majú všetci v obľube. Bolo to super, až na dážď a naše obavy, že sa ráno zobudíme vo vode, haha. Počasie vo všeobecnosti mohlo byť lepšie, na letnú dovolenku to veľmi nevyzeralo, ale aj tak sme si to užili!

Bornholm, sea

From Copenhagen, we took the bus to Swedish Ystad and then the ferry to Bornholm. The journey was around 3 hours in total, so not too bad! This is the cheapest option of getting there, but you can also fly and get there in almost no time 🙂 Our camp was great, we had sea view right from our tent! Being from a country that doesn’t have any sea, I appreciate every opportunity of seeing it!

Z Kodane sme šli autobusom do švédskeho Ystadu a potom trajektom na Bornholm. Celá cesta trvala niečo okolo 3 hodín. Je to tá najlacnejšia možnosť, samozrejme sa dá na Bornholm aj letieť a byť tam teda za niekoľko desiatok minút. Náš kemp bol super, hneď zo stanu sme mali výhľad na more, a to ako dievča z krajiny, ktorá more nemá, viem patrične oceniť!

Bornholm, Hammershus

The first day we started by visiting Hammershus, which is the largest castle ruins in Northern Europe. It is also the most popular attraction on Bornholm and it definitely was worth to see! It definitely offers beautiful views of the beautiful blue sea.

Bornholm, view

Bornholm, Hammershus

Prvý deň sme navštívili Hammershus, čo sú naväčšie ruiny severnej Európy a tiež najpopulárnejšia atrakcia Bornholmu. Nášmu Spišskému hradu sa to síce nevyrovná, ale výhľady na krásne čisté more tam teda boli skvelé 🙂 

Bornholm beach

Later that day we travelled through the whole island, to visit one of the most beautiful beaches. The sand there was really really soft, not like in Copenhagen, but it was also really really cold! While the others gathered up the strength and went to the water, I was just watching them. They definitely didn’t seem the water was warm though!

Po návšteve Hammershusu sme šli na druhú stranu ostrova, pozrieť sa na jednu z (vraj) najkraších pláží. Piesok bol nádherne jemný, nie ako v Kodani, ale bola tam hrozná zima! Zatiaľ čo ostatní sa odvážne vrhli do vody, ja som ostala na brehu. Nevyzerali že by voda bola kto vie ako teplá, haha.

Echo village

Next day we went on a little hike to the Ekkodalen (Echo valley). We hiked couple of kms in the forest and the mushroom picking girl inside of me was very thrilled of seeing a lot of them alongside the path (fun fact: I don’t like mushrooms, I just love picking them).

The rest of the day we spent playing games and laying in our tent, as it was raining, unfortunately.

Last day of our trip we went to play minigolf at the biggest minigolf park in Northern Europe. It was amazing, all of the holes represented some Bornholm’s attraction. It was also crazy stuffed there though.

Ďalší deň sme si spravili menšiu túru do Ekkodalen, čiže nejakého echo údolia. Pri prechádzke lesom sa tešilo hlavne to dedinské dievča vo mne a vždy som obdivovala huby, ktoré tam rástli. Ostatní nechápali. Fun fact: Huby nejem, iba zbieram.

Posledný deň nášho výletu sme šli hrať minigolf do naväčšieho minigolf parku v severnej Európe. Každá z jamiek predstavovala nejakú atrakciu Bornholmu a bolo to super! 

Bornholm, Rødby

After boarding the ferry on the way back, we got this beautiful view of the city of Rønne, which is the biggest city on Bornholm. Isn’t it beautiful?

Cestou naspäť sa nám naskytol takýto výhľad na mesto Rønne, ktoré je najväčším mestom na Bornholme. Nie je to krásne? 

Have you ever been to Bornholm? Or would you like to see it? I definitely recommend and I will definitely go back!
