Schuster chooses low-key holiday

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster has started a four-week holiday in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik and in Slovakia's Košice.

Presidential spokesman Ján Fule said that Schuster's daughter Ingrid, a physician, will ensure medical care for the head of state.

Two years ago Schuster almost died after a botched operation on a perforated colon led to multiple organ failure.

Unlike last year, when Schuster chose to spend his holiday in the Brazilian jungle, the head of state this year chose a holiday destination popular with many common Slovaks.
