Fairytale sand sculptures – Fun for the whole family
We invite you to the newly built PIESOČKOVA complex, where you will see huge fairy-tale sand sculptures.
You will only see fairy-tale sand sculptures this year, as it will be unique every year.
220 tons of river sand were used for the construction of the sculptures. There are 15 oversized statues with fairy-tale motifs in the complex, the largest of which measures over two meters. The works of art were created by the skilful hands of seven carvers under the baton of Adam Bakoš, who is behind such projects as the Tatra Ice Dome in Hrebienok or the Wooden Kingdom in Liptovský Ján.
The statues represent figures known from world and Slovak fairy tales. In total, the sculptures were erected for up to five weeks by seven carvers from Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic, with four working daily. The weather complicated the whole process of their creation. Basically, for almost five weeks, the weather was cold, there was snow, heavy rain. Now that the statues are standing, they are more or less resistant to external influences. The biggest problem is their frost and snow, so Piesočkovo should work until winter. They are expected to close down in Liptovský Ján in December. However, it all depends on the weather that will affect the sculptures.
In addition, animations and creative workshops will take place in Piesočkov during the months of July and August. At the same time, there is a sandpit for playing, climbing frames and a house.
