SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

Košice is a city of motion, says a Parisian (video included)

The beauty of Košice lies in its human relationships and in the fact that it is always able to push you further, says Christian Potiron, a Parisian living in the eastern Slovak metropolis. In the nine years that he has lived in the country, Slovakia has become his home.

Videos made by journalism students who discovered Slovakia for the 16th edition of Spectacular Slovakia, the annual travel guide published by the English-language weekly The Slovak Spectator.

Along with the young journalists who wrote the bulk of the guide, photographer Yuri Dojc and editor Howard Swains participated in this year's issue. This project was also made possible thanks to the cooperation of the Journalism Department of Comenius University and the Slovak Tourist Board (SACR).

The 16th edition of Spectacular Slovakia will be on sale from September 19, 2011, via the spectator.sk online shop. More information can be obtained by emailing circulation@spectator.sk.
