Czechs, Poles and Germans are top tourists

More Czechs tourists visited Slovakia last year than any other group, reported the Slovak Agency for Tourism on January 15. They typically visited in the summer to hike in the High Tatras mountains plus the Liptov, Turiec and Gemer regions.
The second largest tourist group were the Poles, who also came in the summer for hiking, but more so in the winter for skiing. Placing third in terms of numbers of visitors were the Germans, however in terms of money spent they were the number one group.

Money stolen from the altar

Two boys, aged 11 and 14, broke into Krompachy cathedral at 5:00 on January 14 and stole three collection boxes from the altar. In a nearby meadow they broke open the boxes and made off with Sk3,000 ($63). Total damage amounted to nearly Sk7,000.
