Even such a seemingly scary topic can be a way of learning about the traditional culture of one’s own nation and uncovering its moral legacy. Interactive exhibition, inspired by a book by Katarína Nádaská and illustrator Svetozár Košický: Devils, witches and other monsters, represents a return to the scary figures from Slovak fairytales and fables as a contrast to the Halloween monsters. The visitors will meet a SNAKE – the good guardian of the home, a NIGHTMARE and evil elf HOBGOBLIN, the mill is inhabited by a WATERMAN and WATER NYMPHS and in the underworld a gang of DEVILS is sitting around a fire with Devil’s goulash in the pot. Children can sit on a GRAGON, meet the LIGHT BEARERS, as well as the witch GRGALICA and under the floor they can watch the industrious and tenacious DWARFS.
