The fortress in Komárno looks abandoned, but a large chunk of the history of contemporary Slovakia can be read in its walls and courtyards. With the passage of time – and of the inhabitants who came and went with each successive regime – the fortress changed too and today it stands as a monument.
Video 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, tv.sme 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 email@example.com.
