A TV PROGRAMME IN ENGLISH COVERING THE TRAVELS OF AMERICAN JOURNALIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER AMANDA RIVKIN (VIDEO INCLUDED)

Slovakia in 42 days: Travel in the Trenčín and Trnava Region

To sit – after visits to many castles and ruins – and have a coffee at the Trenčín ice hockey stadium on a hot summer day and to watch trainings on ice is quite a unique traveller’s combination. If you meanwhile happen to meet Marián Gáborík or Edo Hartman, it can be a great chill – and our feet remained dry if it began to rain again... Then you see how Muslims and Jews can meet on neutral soil in Piešťany and how in Dunajská Streda someone from abroad might not mind at all if you are greeted with either Dobrý deň or Jónapot.
