Slovakia pictures

We had to leave the country to keep our visas legal. We took a short bus ride into Slovakia and rented a car and drove the back roads and had a few family days. Here are a few of the pictures. This is a neat looking house in a village where we stopped for a picnic along the river. Here is the view from our room at the little farm we stayed at. Yes, that is a castle in the background. Someone suggested that we visit it and I am so glad that we did. It ended up being the highlight of our trip. In the barn, in the foreground, there were pigeons and horses.
Here is a view inside of the castle. There has been a castle on this hill since the 1100AD. There were so many interesting stories about kings, and princesses and battles. Lots of history and so much fun.

I thought this church looked cool. A little different then we had in Ukraine.
