Tribute to Freedom
An event TRIBUTE TO FREEDOM - POCTA SLOBODE, a concert at Devín Castle, has been an integral part of cultural and social happening in Bratislava since 2009, with an overwhelming reach across Slovakia.
The venue of the concert itself- Devín Castle - is one of the most impressive historical places of Central Europe. This mighty landmark is not only a symbolic base of Slovak history, but it is expending all the way to Europe with its significance. The Celts used to live here in the ancient times, after which the Romans came and from the 8th century it is one of the most important Slavic castles.
After the end of the World War II a so called "Iron Curtain" was under its rock.
Devín is thus a symbol for the whole country and is gradually becoming a commemorative place for all democratically minded citizens of Slovakia.
The performers at this year's 11th festival concert will be prominent Czech and Slovak musicians; the extremely successful Czech singer TOMÁŠ KLUS with his group, one of the most successful Slovak singers of these days SIMA MARTAUSOVÁ with her group, the legend of the Czech folk scene VLASTA REDL with his band and a legend of Slovak folklore JÁN AMBRÓZ with folk music called Borievka, which will bring to the visitors an extraordinary artistic experience.
Tribute to Freedom, an exhibition commemorating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain, will also be a part of this year’s event.
The event will be held under the auspices of Juraj Droba, Chairman of the Bratislava Self-governing Region and Matúš Vallo, Mayor of the capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava.
