Slovaks move to the edge

AN increasing number of Slovaks are moving from the centre of towns and cities to villages in surrounding areas.

People may still work in the towns, but there is an increasing trend toward living in the countryside, reported the daily SME.

"People want to enjoy the advantages of the countryside and town at the same time," said sociologist Ľubomír Falťan of the Slovak Academy of Sciences.

And the trend is not confined to Bratislava and Košice.

"This is the whole of Slovakia we are talking about," added Falťan.
