Description: The Civil Association Rakociho cesta carries the idea of a touristic path that would connect places related to the history of the Rakoci’s family tree. The aim of the movement is to preserve and renovate historical monuments and traditions. They would like to continue with the original “Rakoci’s path” goal which was to contribute to the development of the region. Rakociho cesta is currently involved in the renovation of the following castles: Saris, Kapusany, Sebes, Solnohrad (Salt Castle), Lipovce and Obisovce. The workcamps are organized with the association since 2008.
Type of Work: Revitalizing the old ruins of the small Obisovce Castle in Slovak Carpathians: renovation works, cleaning the area, help with masonry work with the traditional techniques, transport of the material like sand, rocks, and water. The volunteers will help with archeological acitvities and they will learn about castles in Eastern Slovakia.
Study Theme: The workcamp will be visited by INEX Messenger who will organize a workshop focused on current issues in Europe. The volunteers will prepare the "Feast of cultures" - an international food festival for the local community, and will join the “volunteering footprint” workshop. Our camps will follow the rules of Sustainability campaign.
Accommodation: The volunteers will stay in the village Obisovce (1,5 km from Kysak, 22 km from Presov) in the eastern part of Slovakia. The volunteers will sleep in local Cultural House on the floor with toilette facilities and kitchen. Sleeping bag and mat are neccessary. The food will be prepared by the volunteers themselves. Vegetarian catering is possible.
