Today we visited the glass factory. After paying SK 120.oo we visited the factory. I think, it's not a place you have to see. I've seen lots of glass factories all over the world, this one, in my opinion, is really not worthwhile to visit.

Amazing to see the artisans in action, manipulating the glass into beautiful shapes. Maybe would have been cool to have some guide to show us around and tell more than just visit ourselves.
