SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

Even Noah would be proud of the Liptov Ark (video included)

Narrow is the way to heaven, the choirmaster of the Archa Locus (Ark Locus) church says. This small temple, surrounded by some of Slovakia’s best-known mountains, is a place of rest for pilgrims – but anyone, believer or non-believer, is welcome to stop by and regain their strength before continuing on their way through Liptov.

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.
