Slovak week opens in Brussels

A SLOVAK Week was launched at European Union institutions in Brussels on April 19 with a conference attended by Slovak Deputy Premier Pál Csáky, the news wire TASR wrote.

Csáky said he was pleasantly surprised with the level of interest in the conference and also the many questions asked, even though a number of them were on thorny issues such as the situation of the Roma minority in Slovakia.

"We should not be offended if asked about sensitive issues, but I think Slovakia is, in general, perceived as a country with good prospects," Csáky told journalists afterwards.

Slovak Week will also include presentations on the Slovak regions as well as Slovak films, cuisine, and folklore.

On April 23, the famous Manneken Pis statue in Brussels will be dressed in a Slovak folk costume.
