Reader feedback: Tourism at odds with preservation

Re: Tourism at odds with preservation, By Marta Ďurianová, July 12-18, Vol 10, No 27

Yes, Slovakia must bring its resources and future tourist areas up to modern standards, but it must also not rush into anything that will destroy her natural environment for the sake of instant money. Decisions must be made selectively.

Again, Slovakia must not fall for the instant gratification of want, but temper its appetite for what it needs.

Lets take care of what is already there in tourism; update the existing areas and improve the infrastructure such as roads, shops, travel guides, restaurants, inns and pensions, rental cars, and educate the new locals who will be working at all of these places.

The tourism economy is not going to boom over night. With proper planning it will prove to be a lasting positive for Slovakia.
