Nature like in fairy tales. Yes, this is the first thing come to my mind when I remember my two days in Valec…
The village Valec is located in the Karlovy Vary district in the north-west of the Czech Republic. Village has around 350 inhabitants.
There wasn’t direct transport from Kladno to Valec. So we went from Praha Florenc to Lubenec-Karlovarsky and our friends Lilit and Gegham took us to Valec with a car. They are also volunteers like us but their main job is relatied to farming. I couldn’t explore a lot about their activities because of the f stival but the owner of the farm invited us for summer to go back to Valec and learn more. I will definitely go for some days in the following months.
In Valec there is castle built in 17th century. I was lucky enough that I could enter the castle. It wasn’t in fantastic situation but the expressionist modern artworks were very impressive.
Zcestovalec gathering was the 5th this year. The most impressive part for me was the presentation of a honeymoon of a couple who travelled from Slovakia by car across Mongolia, Siberia etc. and in the evening during the concert performances of Vojta Violnist and Yo Soy Indigo.
I am looking forward my next visit to this wonderful place.
