Description: The Civil Association Rakociho cesta carries the idea of a touristic path that would connect places related to the history of the Rakociaeuros family tree. The aim of the movement is to preserve and renovate historical monuments and traditions. They would like to continue with the original aeurooeRakociaeuros pathaeuro 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 Lipovce Castle from 13th century: renovation works, cleaning the area, help with masonry work with the traditional techniques, transport of the material like sand, rocks, and water.

Study Theme: The workcamp will be visited by INEX Messenger who will organize a workshop focused on current events in Europe.
