A PROJECT that presents Slovakia to the capitals of the European Union, entitled Slovakia - Europe In Small, continues its tour.

Organised by the Association for Culture, Education, and Communication, the project is composed of two parts - a concert and an economic forum. After successful presentations in France, Belgium, and Germany, it will transfer to Vienna, Austria, in November.

Audiences have been treated to the Bratislava Chamber Orchestra led by Anton Popovič, featuring soprano Ľubica Vargicová, oboist Francois Leleux and trumpeter Joachimom Schäferom. The project's economic forum has been represented by significant figures from the economic and political community in Slovakia, including Financial Minister Ivan Mikloš and Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan.

In Austria, the cultural part of the project will present the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Tomáš Hanus at the Viennese Mozartsall.
