SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA (VIDEO INCLUDED)

McCullough: “Slovakia is an outsider, and I have a soft spot for those”

Slovaks are generally easy-going, and arrogance is not a typical characteristic of Slovaks, believes Paul McCullough, who has lived in Slovakia, mainly in Bratislava, for over 20 years. “To a certain degree I feel the same way, so I feel quite at home here in Slovakia.”

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.
