Am I at Žebrák or at Točník?

Žebrák Castle forms a twin-castle system with the higher positioned Točník Castle. People, however, often mix them up. This fact was also noticed by the famous Czech pioneer Jára Cimrman, and so in his encyclopedic guide "Eternal errors" (Lijavec game) he assigned a pair of titles to Žebrák and Točník as fraktura a faktura. (fracture and invoice in English). The fact that the lower castle Žebrák is located in the village of Točník is responsible for this handed down error.
