Reader feedback: What is wrong?

Re: Slovakia attracts more but shorter visits, Volume 12, Number 13, April 03 - April 09, 2006

What's wrong with the Slovak tourism industry? You have a wonderful and marvelous country, but people are not going to visit if you don't promote, promote, promote.

Where are all the ads at airports, train stations, bus stops, etc? What about advertisements in the travel sections of all the major international newspapers? And why aren't Slovak embassies around the world promoting Slovakia more?

All these years since independence should've been spent watching how other countries attract tourists, seeing what works and what doesn't. Come on, people. Let's get with it already!

Please try harder, or maybe you just don't care enough? Believe me, I do.
