Reader feedback: Article highlights "must-see" Slovak region

Re: "Poorest areas in Prešov mountain regions hide architectural jewels" by Zuzana Habšudová, Vol. 8 No. 29, August 5-11, 2002

I am quite proud of my Rusyn ancestor's skill and craftsmanship in designing such magnificent edifices. These churches are amazing to read about, but even more spectacular when seen in person. That they were built by some of the poorest people in the region is a credit to their dedication to their faith.

If you ever have a chance to visit the region, put them on your "must-see list."

Thank you for highlighting these churches.
