The Museum of the Slovak Village in Martin is not only a place where visitors can look into the details of the past life of villages in the Orava, Liptov, Kysuce and Turiec regions, but most of all it is a place where the atmosphere of the village can still be found. And that is what many Slovaks, now living faster lives in towns and cities, often miss the most.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
