CALENDAR OF EVENTS 2020

 



ALL SAINTS DAY
(EVENING TOURS)


30. 10. – 31. 10. 2020

Slovak National Museum – Museum Bojnice offers visitors to untraditional night tour with autumn decorations, ghosts and luminous pumpkins. Jack-o'-lantern or ignis fatuus is an unearthly light which attracts travellers. Its tradition comes back to ancient Celts who believed that on the last day of October, the souls of the dead returned back to the earth. Celts used a light as a protection against these souls. Later they put the light into carved pumpkins. Then they felt protected and safe.

Tours are only in Slovak language.
