Secret Castle Ruins
"A quick gentle hike up the grassy hill with a buggy, supplies and a lot of enthusiasm led us to beautiful views opening all around us. We entered a little secret world of an old castle ruin with 360 degrees views of magnificent countryside at the top, a small manor farm house being repaired outside castle gates by volunteers by bare hands, lots of shaded areas to make a little day camp and even a perfect designated bbq area. We walked around the castle hill for about 45mins, set up a picnic zone afterwards, grilled Slovak sausages and bacon in open air, then hiked up a small hill in another 15mins and were rewarded by fantastic views, peaceful atmosphere and barely saw a soul (this was in June 2019). Our 1 year old slept through lunch in his buggy and then happily explored sticks, grasses and soaked up this unique hidden gem. We bought some cold drinks and postcards of the place from the little manor house souvenir shop - it's completely non-commercial, that little money goes all into repairs and the whole experience felt like we were let in on a secret.
I can't wait to book more trips with Eva, as aside of all the beautiful and not so obvious locations she can take you to, she is not only very knowledgeable but also one smiley, fun, bubbly ball of energy that's an absolute pleasure to be around.
