Recently, the regional government held a similar poll in which citizens chose ‘The Seven Wonders of the Prešov Region’ from among 20 nominated cultural and natural places of interest.

“Due to quite a great interest we decided to prepare a similar event that would culminate in publication of a regional cookbook,” Fitzeková said.

After the recipes and suggestions have been collected, internet voting will launch on June 1.
The final vote count will be made in October.
