The visit to Levice in the project Agropuzzle

First of all, we visited Secondary School of Agriculture in Levice, where we met headmaster Milos Rosenberger and project coordinator Hedviga Gulova. We learned about the programme of the Agropuzzle project that had been prepared for us. We admired a nicely decorated school, then we visited Levice castle with the museum Tekov and we met a mayor of Levice, Stefan Misak.

In the afternoon, our organization Natura Opava gave a presentation Natura 2000 - Bird areas in Slovakia. In the presentation were included protected bird species which occur in the Bird area Dolnie Pohronie - the protected area Pastovce that lies in the cadastral area of Pastovce.

The visit to the mill "Hajnaluv mlyn" - a permaculture involved in the project Agropuzzle

We were really looking forward to the visit of the mill in Medovarce and we were wondering what is meant by the term "permaculture". After seeing the house and garden of Patricia Černáková and after listening to her interesting commentary, many of us realized that she really understands the sense of a permanently maintainable development. And she is a real promoter of this lifestyle. This life philosophy, when we realize that we are not the only inhabitants of the environment, but we have to share it with other animals and plants, will protect us from devastating human greed. It was very enlightening.

The visit to the ecofarm AFRA which is focused on medicinal plants manufacturing

On the way to the UNESCO Site Levoca, we visited Ecofarm owned by Zuzana Homolova, which is focused on the manufacturing of medicinal plants. Various teas and extracts are prepared here from plants collected in the pure nature. We bought teas and other gifts for our friends and relatives. We really appreciated the original names of teas, it is an excellent marketing strategy.

Levoca - UNESCO World Heritage Site

The town is well-known for its St. Jakob's church with the greatest wooden gothic altar in the world (18,65 m high) which was made by a sculptor, Master Paul of Levoca. Masses have been celebrated there for 700 years. Since 1965, the altar has been a national cultural site. To the municipal cultural reservation belongs also the former Gothic (since 1550 Reinaissance) townhall with arcades and a pillory " a cage of shame " located in front of the building.

Bardejov - UNESCO World Heritage Site

If a Slovakian town is to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, it has to be Bardejov. In fact, it was added there in 2000. The highlights of this beautiful medieval town are the Gothic church of Sv. Aegidius together with Gothic and Reinaissance townhall, which are situated in the central square. Tourists can also admire the spa Bardejov which has played a host to Sisi, Franz Joseph's wife. There are 17 therapeutical mineral water springs and digestive and respiratory problems are cured there. A nearby folk architecture museum is remarkable too.
