A quote in the article More liberal visa regime with Ukraine? on page 2 of Vol 9 No 41 should have read: "'Considering that Poland and Hungary have changed their systems, and we are keen on easing the border crossing with Hungary and Poland, I would find it self-deceptive to insist on charging our Ukrainian neighbours for Slovak visas,' József Berényi told The Slovak Spectator."

The correct name of the Slovak documentary director that appeared on page 13 of Vol 9 No 40 was Peter Kerekes, not Kerekeš. Also, the whole name of the director of the Galéria umenia Nové Zámky, quoted in a feature article on page 18 of Vol 9 No 41, is Magdaléna Klobučníková.

The Slovak Spectator regrets the errors.
