      I am in Slovensko for vacation. Today, my cousin and I drove to Dukla Pass from Spisska Nova Ves. It took 2.5 hours. It is not close to anything, well, maybe an hour or so from Presov can be considered close.<br/><br/>If you are ever in the area, this should be on your must see list. The monument is beautiful. It is at the site of the graves of at least 800 soldiers from all countries involved in the battle. <br/><br/>We drove a few meters and found the observatory/museum. It was only 1 Euro to go to the deck 8 stories up. What a view. If you used your imagination, you can just see the battles going on. There are plenty of artifacts to see, including tanks, weaponry and miscellaneous items. Along the way there, you see old tanks and Howitzer-style cannons in the fields.<br/><br/>The monument and tower are just a few meters from Poland, like 30 meters, so we did. Now I can say I was in Poland! I also have the pictures to prove
      it.<br/><br/>The trip back included a stop in Vysny Komarnik just south of Dukla at an old Rusyn wooden church. I've never seen one. I only took pictures from the road.<br/><br/>We stopped at Svitnik for another war memorial. The plaques were written in Czech and Russian.<br/><br/> I highly recommend a trip to Dukla with stops along the way.<br/><br/>Cathie McAdams.<br/><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo! Mail for iPad
