Slovakia exceeds expectations, its people are nice and hospitable, and Slovak wines are not too bad either, say foreign tourists in the streets of Bratislava about their experiences of Slovakia.

Slovakia exceeds expectations, its people are nice and hospitable, and Slovak wines are not too bad either, say foreign tourists in the streets of Bratislava about their experiences of Slovakia.

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.
