SK, Learn About Slovakian Castles, Afoot or By Bike
Summer is in full swing and it is the best time for family trips. Medieval castles are among the most popular attractions. Children and adults enjoy this. That's why we were fascinated by a new book that helps you to discover medieval castles from a new perspective.
The new book From Castle to Castle Part Two offers several interesting hiking or cycling ideas which take you to the most popular castles in the central and eastern part of Slovakia. The part two which takes on discovering castles tries to combine active rest and learning something new. The authors of the book are Daniel Kollar and Jan Lacik.
For Demanding Tourists As Well As for Families
From Castle to Castle, the routes are usually of easy to moderate difficulty. However, they can be shortened and offer only visits to individual castle sites. Almost any route may be done either afoot or by bike. It depends upon your fitness.
Interesting Facts and Legends
In addition to the description of each route, the book does include attractions related to individual castles and rumors about them. The authors have selected the most beautiful ruins to this publication not only from a visual point of view, but also from a tourist perspective. As the publications about the castles are already exhausted, they tried to describe the castles in a different way.
Known and Less Known
Do you know where the Pohan Castle is located or the remains of Sebeš Castle? Which castles give you beautiful circular views of the surrounding countryside? The book will take you to the well-known and less well-known Slovak castles and will offer, in addition to classical tourism, the knowledge of a significant part of our history.
Come and discover discoveries that have not been previously less known, enjoy them and learn new knowledge. Many of you may visit Slovak castles even with a secret desire to discover something mystical. Even if you do not, we promise you will enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of a charming country, where most of these stone memorials of medieval history of Slovakia are played.
Moreover we offer you to win both parts of this amazing book guide. The only thing you have to do is to write us a tip for a castle you have visited. We accept your tips till August 12, 2018. Send them to our e-mail 4gsyQOQa9~Bq2~6_Tlx. We will announce the winner on our social profiles.
