Castles are monuments of the past ages. If we would like to compare them with something in virtual reality, they are like data discs. Data of the ages from the past, data about people and various times, but also about culture and architecture.
We have quite many historical monuments in Slovakia. Last year, during pandemic, we launched a project with the title Get to know Slovakia in a Real and Virtual Way, where we provided tips for hikes to interesting unknown places in Slovakia.
This summer, the situation with pandemic is very similar. Therefore we have decided to prepare the series about castles in Slovak territory, which have many historical data saved in their walls.
We received the advice which interesting castles to select, accompanied with a short narrating about their history from the expert in history revival – free fencing master Peter Koza, who is going to guide us through each video.
In the following months, we are going to introduce you one castle every two weeks, making it five castles across Slovakia in total. And of course we will be happy if you will visit these spectacular ”data discs” from the past in person. Try to guess which ones they will be?
Even if you can’t visit these places, we are offering you, number of virtual possibilities to learn more about our castles. Have a look into our virtual tours, photo galleries or other attractions associated with each place. Everything that is real, can also be virtual – we already know that!
Let yourself be inspired and expand your knowledge about the history of our beautiful Slovakia, which is growing in both directions, in real, but also in virtual way. There will always be up-to-date information available about this project on our website and social networks.
