Reader feedback: See Slovakia's biggest stars

Re: Great Escapes: Hiking the Low Tatras, By Roman Millan with John Sherwood, Vol 10, No 30, Aug 9 - 15

Late yesterday, around 23:50, I switched all the lights off and went to sit in the garden here in Radošovce. There was a beautiful meteor storm to be seen. Slovakia is ideal for "heavenly" panoramas, since outside the large(r) population centres, the country is not densely populated and Slovaks are generally stingy with electricity (hardly any light pollution). There are quite a lot of stargazers in this world, so perhaps you guys could arrange trips for that type of tourist as well.
