1988. In Holíč, Czechoslovakia, 40km west of Bratislava, the construction of new panel houses has started. During the project, while digging, an old prehistory sanctuary is discovered.

60m around, consisting of 25 stones, placed in two circles with a variation of small and wide "female" stones with tall and slim "male" stones.

Imagine Stonehenge.

In miniature.

Among the panel houses.

On these stones, standing here since time immemorial, children play by day, and men, in the moonlight, proclaim their affections to women.

Discover Small Carpathians

Let's take a road trip through Bratislava's outskirts along a winding road through the pine forest overlooking the gently rounded hills of the Small Carpathians.

Hidden among the landscape are mysterious castle ruins, perched on rocks whose ancient strength you can test while climbing and admire from above while paragliding.

Examine the ancient Celtic settlement Pohanska.

Harken to a story, a Slovak remake of the Trojan war, involving the kidnapping of a beautiful woman and the epic struggle to free her.

Wander enraptured among a sea of countless white snowdrops.

Return to the past and feel time stop listening to the wind whisper through the blades of an historic windmill.

Gaze awestruck before the oldest church in central Europe, a Romanesque building standing alone in a field of wheat.

Ramble along the cobblestone streets in the westernmost royal Slovak town, birthplace of the best Slovak ice hockey player, a hero of the Slovak national sport.

Finally take the helm of your boat on the Baťa canal. Does the name Baťa ring a bell? Look at your shoes. Who was he? The Czechoslovak Henry Ford!
