Re: Slovakia losing its traditional tourists, Flash news briefs, Aug 29 - Sept 5, Vol 10, No 33

Who are the people responsible for promoting Slovakia abroad? What are they doing? Clearly, not enough.

There is no mention of Slovakia as a holiday destination in the international newspapers or TV channels. Why?

Abroad, visitors are flooded with leaflets and tourist maps promoting local attractions. In Slovakia, one has to actually go to the attraction first to get the information.

As for the information offices, they close at midday on Saturday and stay closed all Sunday. To speak of cheerful or polite information officers at train and bus stations around Slovakia would be just wishful thinking.

About every country in the world has realized that tourism is an important source of income. Why not Slovakia?
