Slovak Pavilion at EXPO Zaragoza 2008 attracting scores of visitors

The Slovak pavilion at the international EXPO Zaragoza 2008 in Spain is crowded with visitors, with queues forming at the entrance, Ivana Magátová, deputy of the Slovak exhibition's general commissioner, said on June 19. People are leaving impressed and are lavishing praise and recognition on it, she added. The Slovak pavilion presents the country as the Spring of Europe, acquainting visitors with the many ways in which Slovakia's high-quality water management is applied. Those interested can also taste a variety of Slovak mineral-water brands. As the Slovak Economy Ministry has announced, the exposition, which is open between June 14-September 14, will also feature a special Slovak Day on August 3. The central theme of Spain's exposition is 'Water and Sustainable Development'. A total of between 6-8 million visitors are expected. TASR
