SDĽ leaders mount Rysy to sing International

Parliamentary Speaker Jozef Migaš, together with Ľubomír Andrassy, vice-chairman of Migaš' ruling coalition Democratic Left Party, ascended Mt. Rysy in the Hugh Tatras mountains August 3.

The pair drove by car to Popradské pleso (Lake Poprad) and then, accompanied by mountain rescue service member Geiza Haak, ascended to Chata pod Rysmi (Rysy Cottage) where, cottage manager Viktor Beránek said, they were greeted with "snow-chilled Poprad beer."

The two hikers then sang the International, a classic communist song, and completed their ascent of the mountain.
