During opening hours, children will be invited to look for decorated Easter eggs hidden within castle walls. Those who find at least three eggs can exchange them for a sweet reward, head of the Hrad Beckov grouping, Peter Pastier, told the TASR newswire. He added that for adults, organisers have arranged a thrilling search operation.

The accompanying events at Easter include workshops for children, colouring, an exhibition of decorated Easter eggs, workshops on knitting eggs, and real animals normally associated with Easter, TASR wrote.
