HoryZonty - Adventures in Visegrad Region

Special block focused on various opportunities for outdoor activities in Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The main theme of this block will be nature protection. Our guests will introduce nature localities and protected territories on the Slovak-Hungarian and the Slovak-Polish borders which are unknown to many Slovaks. One of our goals is looking for opportunities for mutual cooperation of people who care about preservation and protection of the wild nature in countries of the Visegrad Region.

“Adventure in Visegrad” will be different comparing to previous years. However, it remains the adventure. It will be about searching and discovering fragile and valuable territories and wild animals amidst deep forests.

The Hungarian environmentalist György Gadó will show us in his presentation and in the short film within the Friday afternoon block that animals do not know the borders (unless a man will stop them), in the evening the Polish zoologist Zenon Wojtas together with the Slovak Kamil Soóš will continue in the same theme with the presentation Wild Nature of Eastern Carpathians. The Slovak environmentalist and filmmaker Erik Baláž with his friends Karol Kaliský and Jozef Fiala will present the premiere of his new film The Wolf Mountains.

The presentation of the guests who are actively dedicated not only to nature protection but also to public education will include also familiarizing festival visitors with opportunities for hiking in lesser known national parks and protected landscape areas of the borderland and neighbouring countries.

Even if the dominant topic of Adventures in Visegrad is nature protection on the territory of V4 countries we will not omit unique sports achievements. This thematic part of the block as well as the country of our western neighbours will be represented by an excellent Czech climber Marek Holeček who has received acknowledgements for his first ascents done in the alpine style and awards for his documentaries and lectures at the festivals. In Trenčín he will be presenting his Himalayan expeditions.
