The Power of the Night - The Spirits of Loka Castle at Night
Do you dare to explore Loka Castle when its stories, which are shrouded in mystery, come to life? Join the castle caretaker for a journey among the spirits.
After sunset, when the lights begin to come on in Škofja Loka, it becomes very, very dark at Loka Castle. Spirits, who have been caught between the castle walls for centuries, begin to awaken at night. The familiar rooms and objects take on an entirely different look in the dark.Who is the girl with a crown in the midst of the forest full of foxes, in the painting by the academic artist Tina Dobrajc titled 'Tam, kjer so stvari divje' (Where the Wild Things Are)? You will 'borrow' the main thread from the painting by the acclaimed artist, in which she masterfully blends Slovenian tradition and mythology with modernity, and this will be your only lead on a walk through the dark rooms with the castle caretaker.The experience always begins at sunset, i.e. at a different time on each occasion. You will find yourself amid a theatre show and a thriller all at once. Ursula's crown will come to life, a stuffed animal will move, the noise of old keys and a chest will be heard, and combs, nails and angels will dance in the shadows in the chapel.The caretaker, dressed in a black Loka robe with a hood, stirs one's imagination and plants fear beneath one's skin. From the Kalan's bedroom to the Passion Play room, step-bystep you will discover the dark secrets of the former castle residents.
