Marian Hossa's favorite thing to do in Chicago is walk around. As big as the city is, it reminds him of being home in Trencin, Slovakia.

It's the intimacy of the city, the endless activity and the comfort of being around people.

"In Chicago, [wife Jana and I] like to walk in the city and just explore," Hossa said in an interview with the Sun-Times. "It reminds me of Europe because so many people walk.

"It doesn't matter what the weather is. You see on Michigan Avenue or around those streets, people like to walk. That's awesome. I love that style."
