In the second part of the programme Faces of Slovakia, Jozef Strojný who manages a bandit’s chalet, shares his recipe of success and tells why it is not recommended to visit his place in a tie. Guide Roman Vavrek takes the viewers through the most interesting parts of Ochtina Aragonite Cave and Mariánka vicar Marek Chrysostom Vadrna talks about visitors of the oldest pilgrimage place in Slovakia. Then Vladimír Michal explains why being a book seller is the best job in the world.

The video germinated from the travels of journalism students who were exploring and discovering Slovakia for the 17th edition of Spectacular Slovakia, an English-language travel guide published by The Slovak Spectator.
