“Once there was a castle…” - First round

“Once there was a castle…” - First round

Dear listeners, since you have waited patiently, here is your reward! Also in the year 2021, Radio Slovakia International has prepared its yearlong competition series, which you can take part in. From February until November, once a month we will bring you an interesting feature with a question at the end. If you know the answer and send it to us, at the end of the month we will draw one winner from all the correct answers we receive. By now, you must know the drill, right? So, are you ready? We start the series with perhaps the most spooky one - Čachtice castle and its infamous inhabitant, the Bloody Countess Elizabeth Bathory!

COMPETITION - 1 round

And here is the first competition question:

How many young girls did Elizabeth Bathory allegedly torture to death?

Send in your answers by the end of February
to our email address englishsection@rtvs.sk
or via regular post to Radio Slovakia International, RTVS, Mlynska dolina, 84545 Bratislava, Slovakia.

Nice prizes are awaiting you, so good luck!
