CHESTNUT Celebrations annually take place at one of the smallest towns in Slovakia, Modrý Kameň, in the south-central district of Veľký Krtíš. This year's festivities will be held on October 11.
"Chestnuts, warm, baked, aromatic... are as much a part of the town of Modrý Kameň as its castle is," said Edita Debnárová from Nový Pokrok, the region's weekly.
The chestnuts will be presented in several ways: baked or raw, assembled into various constructions and figures, used as ingredients in cakes and pastries, or still as a part of small trees. The event, taking place at the town's Lipové Square, will be enriched by a cultural programme and accompanied by a traditional crafts market.
