EARTH HOUR is an annual environmental event spreading quickly around the world that recently has involved more than a billion people. Events have been held in Slovakia for some years and the museum at Bojnice Castle took part this year on March 31 by switching off its lights for one hour from 20:30 till 21:30.

The Slovak National Museum (SNM), which operates the castle museum, told the media this is the third year for its participation. “The head of the museum decided to support the idea and switch off the outer lighting of the otherwise brightly-lit national cultural monument,” said Lucia Sokolová of the museum to the TASR newswire.

Earth Hour is organised by the World Wildlife Fund to highlight topical concerns such as global warming and light pollution.
