THIS POSTCARD shows what the western Slovak town of Vrbové looked like some time before World War I.

The streets were comfortably spacious without cars. Romas, who have always contributed significantly to the local atmosphere of many Slovak towns, form the larger group of people in the foreground.

Vrbové would only be known within its regional borders if not for two important personalities who were born there: Móric Beňovský and Jozef Adamec.

Beňovský was a wealthy gentleman, who founded the French colony of Luisbourg on Madagascar, where he was elected king in 1773. Adamec was one of the best soccer players in Slovak history, who scored three goals against Brasil in a single match.
