ARCHAEOLOGICAL excavations and findings from the period of Great Moravia have made Bojná a more popular tourist destination in the Topoľčianky district than the summer resort Duchonka, the TASR newswire wrote in mid May.

Some decades ago Duchonka, with its man-made lake, was one of the country’s most popular summer destinations. However, its water is no longer suitable for swimming and its popularity has waned.
Bojná has replaced Duchonka as the driving force of tourism in the district. The archaeological site, on which replicas of original dwellings have been built, is partially accessible to visitors.
