SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

In search of silence, head east? (video included)

East of Košice life slows down and the noise of the city is replaced by the quiet of the countryside and the serenity of nature. Such are the ruins of the castles of Brekov and Vinné, but also the volcanic lake Morské Oko (Sea Eye), where doing nothing becomes an all-day pastime.

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.
