A Sunday walk to the heights of the Burda a few miles east of Sturovo was rewarded with a panoramic view of the Danube valley shrouded in late morning mist but with the still distinctive outlines  of Esztergom’s basilica church and the Bridge. The Burda is 388m above sea level and part of the nature reserve indicated on  the map below.

The Panorama Hotel, all late 1960s and early 1970s chic, sits on the lower slopes of the hill near the village of Kovacov where we began our walk this morning. Thirty six years ago in 1975, according to an inscribed plaque on the plinth, Anna Kisacova made a sculpture of a group of children pursuing a dove. This celebration of the future of youth sits hopefully on the hotel forecourt. I have been unable to find any reference to her own previous or future work.
