At the end of May 2015 I visited the medieval festival along with a couple of friends, that took place at the castle called Červený Kameň (Red Casle or Rotenstein in German). Each year this two day festival attracts thousands of visitors. Various groups present their arts, crafts and abilities, including swordfighting, medieval drama, falconry, horse riding and jousting. I especially enjoyed show by Saint Bavon falconers. Along the traditional birds of prey, they showcased a bald eagle. It was great to see this magnificent bird in person for the first time.
In February 2015, I had an incredible opportunity to attend the biathlon event of the season – the IBU World Cup in Nove Mesto na Morave. Top biathletes, beautiful weather and massive attendance. In other words – a perfect saturday. My photogallery is from sprint competitions. Laura Dahlmeier won the 7,5 km women’s sprint and Jakov Fak of Slovenia was the fastest man on 10 km track.
