OTHER:

The participation of foreign performers is subject to contractual conditions, depending on the current regulations on border crossing.

We believe that the situation will improve sufficiently towards the summer months!

TESTOVANIE:
ako náhrada k vyššie spomenutým možnostiam:
⊛ negatívny výsledok Antigénového testu, RT-PCR alebo LAMP testu na ochorenie COVID-19 nie staršieho ako 12 hodín - predloženie dokladu o testovaní k nahliadnutiu.
⊛ pre návštevníkov festivalu máme rezervovaný slot na antigénové testovanie v partnerskej spolupráci s Laboratóriá Piešťany, Sad Andreja Kmeťa 22 v čase 12:00 - 15:00 (v centre Piešťan, len kúsoček od Moravan, v podstate máte cestou).
⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊⥊
Keďže autority rozhodli, že bezplatné antigénové testovanie tesne pred konaním hradieb k 1.7. končí (what a luck), máme smolu a teda testy sú spoplatnené.
Pre festivalových návštevníkov za cenu 15 EUR hradenú priamo na testovacom mieste (potrebné nahlásiť "heslo" *festival Hradby Samoty kaštieľ Moravany*), inak sú o 5 eur drahšie. Na výsledok čakáte na mieste do 15 min., vystavia vám certifikát.
Alebo hocikde inde, ak test nebude starší ako 12 hod. k vstupu do areálu.

⥊ PROSÍME, ak z určitých dôvodov nespĺňate žiadnu z vyššie uvedených podmienok, dajte sa prosím otestovať, aby sme si fesťák naplno v zdraví užili a splnili legislatívne stanovené podmienky. Ďakujeme za porozumenie. ⥊

We also count with launching of EU digital green certificates - which should launch during june - allowing safe and free traveling through countries within EU with test/vaccination/overcoming covid.

As we still balance on the edge of the pandemic please follow the anti pandemic measures:

CASTLE/CHATEAU:

Castle (or exactly manor-house) in the village Moravany nad Váhom is an important cultural and historical monument near the world-famous spa town Piešťany in southwestern Slovakia. Originally a medieval building, which consisted of several separate buildings acquired its contemporary look after the reconstruction at the end of the 16th century.
Renaissance mansion with its typical arched attic is surrounded by a park, which in the past included a gallery of sculptures by artists from all over the world, created here as part of their international sculpture symposia. It served as the Home of Slovak Fine Artists. After years the art will return to this place during the festival.
Moravany is also an important archaeological site famous for discovery of statue carved from mammoth - the Neolithic Venus of Moravian, whose age is estimated at more than 20 000 years. Its original can be seen in the museal collections at Bratislava Castle.

Art is what matters...
