This is somewhere in Visegrad [village in the touristic Curb of the Danube], I used to go there a lot.

There was some kind of a holiday home there, we would often go there with my family for a few days. My father always had a lot of friends there.

I liked going there because there was an open-air swimming pool there and we could play in the water. I remember that the men discussed separately among themselves, and the women chatted.
