SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

Kremnica – where no one’s pocket is too deep (video included)

A trip to Kremnica is a trip to the land of money. For centuries now, Kremnica has been known mostly as the place where Slovakia’s largest mint is located. Only a few years ago Slovak crowns were minted here; today it’s euro coins rolling out of the minting house, as well as other valuables.

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.
