LITTLE CARPATHIAN WINE WALKS AND TALKS: SVÄTÝ JUR AND BIELY KAMEŇ CASTLE

EN: The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Persians drank wine. Because where there is no wine there is no love, once said Euripides. And how marvellous is the history of winemaking in the Small Carpathian region! Rounded hills, terraced vineyards measuring around 4,000 hectares and over 700 years of winemaking tradition. A story about a mysterious castle located above the old royal town, Svätý Jur, which hidden in shadows of trees, proudly protected a road to the pass leading to two other castles, Pajštún and Dračí hrádok. About a castle with steep steps, whose beauty and majesty were destroyed during the Hussite and Ottoman wars. About a castle with a legend about one poor woman, who due to her obsession for jewels and gold almost lost her biggest jewel, her son. And with a legend about a pilgrim, who planted a dry stick in front of the castle, which bloomed and grew. And the castle flourished as well, as long as the castle lords took care of the tree.  As soon as they stopped, everything died.

SK:  Starí Egypťania, Gréci, Rimania, Peržania pili víno. Pretože tam, kde nie je víno, niet lásky, povedal Euripides kedysi. A aká úžasná je história vinárstva v Malokarpatskom regióne! Radové vinice s rozlohou okolo 4 000 hektárov a viac ako 700 rokov vinárskej tradície. Príbeh o tajomnom hrade nad starým kráľovským mestom Svätý Jur, ktorý sa skrýval v tieni stromov, hrdo chránil cestu k priechodu vedúcemu k ďalším dvom hradom, Pajštún a Dračí hrádok. O hrade so strmými schodmi, ktorého krása a majestát boli zničené počas husitských a osmanských vojen. O hrade s legendou o jednej chudobnej žene, ktorá kvôli svojej posadnutosti šperkami a zlatom takmer stratila najväčší šperk, svojho syna. A s legendou o pútnikovi, ktorý pred hradom vysadil suchú palicu, ktorá kvitla a rástla. A rozkvital tiež hrad, pokiaľ sa o strom starali páni z hradu. Len čo sa prestali všetko zomrelo.
