Piesočkovo, a compound near Liptovský Ján decorated with oversized fairy-tale sculptures made from sand, is a new tourist attraction for families with children.
Katarína Šarafínová from the Regional Organisation of Tourism Region Liptov said that it is the only compound with sand sculptures in the Liptov and Žilina regions.
Sculptures are well-known characters from international and Slovak fairy-tales. Seven carvers from Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic spent five weeks building them. They used 220 tons of sand for the sculptures.
The new attraction should last until December, depending on the weather, Šarafínová said.
During the summer months, there will be a programme and workshop for children. Moreover, from July 4 to 6, Piesočkovo will host the biggest fairy-tale festival in nature called Za siedmimi horami.
