Ghosts' vacation at Bojnice Castle

THE MOST popular ghosts, spirits, and bogeymen from previous festivals as well as new faces will gather at the 10th International Festival of Ghosts and Spirits at Bojnice Castle in the western Slovak town of Bojnice.

Between May 1 and 4, and May 8 and 11, 100 actors and dancers dressed in historical and ghostly costumes will perform a show entitled Bogeymen on Vacation, several times a day. The story, which includes audience participation, is about ghosts enjoying a deserved break after nine years of haunting.

The tickets (children Sk90 and adults Sk180) will be available at the castle's door on the days of the festival.
