On 12–22 August 2022 the study visit of the Hungarian tourist bloggers, Éva Kisgyörgy and Katalin Prjevara, took place. The main topic of the visit was castles and the greatest tourist attractions of these countries. In Slovakia the visit took place in historic buildings, castles and manor houses e.g. Hotel Château Béla, The Manor-house Mojmírovce, Château Gbeľany, Hotel Hviezdoslav Kezmarok, Hotel The Grand Vígľaš, Grand Hotel Praha and Castle Hotel Galicia Nueva. In Poland the visit took place also on the route of the castles such as Nidzica, Olsztyn, Lidzbark Warmiński, Kwidzyn, Gniew and other attraction e.g. the Copernicus Trail (Olsztyn, Lidzbark Warmiński, Frombork). During the visit the participants also were shown places related to common historical ties between Poland and Hungary, e.g. the figure of Ferdynand Gregorovius, a prominent resident of Nidzica who wrote poems as a tribute to Poles and Hungarians – participants of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848.
