SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

The High Tatras are gradually recovering (video included)

The natural gem of Slovakia, the High Tatras mountains, were hit by a natural disaster in the form of a whirlwind which knocked over thousands of trees back in 2004. In spite of this devastating blow, from which the High Tatras are gradually recovering, these Slovak mountains can still charm visitors.

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 circulation@spectator.sk.
