SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

Coming here to live wasn’t a shock, says an Englishman (video included)

Andrew Billingham came to Prešov the first time in 1983. His first memory of Slovakia and Slovaks is of hospitality. Years later, he and his wife returned to Slovakia to live here, and found their own weekend cottage in the east of the country from which to enjoy the countryside and the nature of the region.

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.
