Supporters of a right-wing group organised a march to the statue of Prince Svätopluk at the Bratislava Castle's courtyard on Saturday, September 18, the TASR newswire reported.

The purpose of the march called a 'National March to the Statue of King Svätopluk II', organised by Folk Party Our Slovakia, is to "unite all Slovaks and Christians who are not indifferent to the fate of the traditional Slovak and Christian symbol: the double-barred cross".

"The aim of this event is to show that we – the patriots and nationalists – are proud of our history ... and to show all those parasites whom we feed in the parliament with our taxes that we won't be beaten by a political witch-hunt nor by political bullying or police brutality," said main organiser of the march, Marian Mišun, as quoted by TASR.

However, the extremists did not manage to reach the Bratislava Castle's courtyard so the gathering was held in nearby Zámocká Street.
