Slovakia … part 2

Here is Princess Mirka.  She is a geography student at Prešov who invited our family to see Stará Ľubovňa Castle where she works.

Benji and Vince “almost” there after hiking through town.  And up the hill.  Funny how all castles are on hills. Winking smile Castle in sight!

This is how our boys play chess.  Benji seems to be winning.10-09_slovensko 17710-09_slovensko 207

My favorite part of the castle would have to be the boar rug and the stalactites growing in the dungeon.

Stará Ľubovňa also has a skanzen (kind of like Pioneer village –for you Utahans) cute old log cabins and churches gathered in a little museum village.

Our boys were a little suspicious of the locals.  10-09_slovensko 24510-09_slovensko 24410-09_slovensko 242

Our kids (especially Cam) love those giant chess games! That's fun to have a personal guide to the castle.
