SPECTACULAR SLOVAKIA

Tasting a bit of Záhorie (video included)

“I really liked the ‘trdelnik’,” says Lucy Valerio, an English language teacher from Manchester, on her first trip to the Záhorie region. Despite its name being hard to pronounce for most foreigners, trdelnik, the traditional dessert from Skalica, belongs among the favourite delicacies that Slovakia has to offer. But Záhorie is not just a place to go for dessert. Valerio recommends some sights for foreign tourists to visit.

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.
