Slovakia has beautiful women (video included)

"When I arrived here I was very very happily surprised," says Yves Rouche, a hotel consultant and golf club manager from South Africa, who came to Slovakia more than five years ago to live with his girlfriend. After studying in France and living all around the world he settled down in Košice. Slovakia was much more colorful and free than he initially thought it would be, he said. "Actually this country was very nice, beautiful women - certainly one of the highest concentrations of pretty ladies," he says.

Video made by journalism students who discovered Slovakia for the 19th edition of Spectacular Slovakia , the annual travel guide published by the English-language weekly The Slovak Spectator.

This project was also made possible thanks to the cooperation of the Journalism Department of Comenius University, tv.sme and support of the Slovak Tourist Board (SACR) and Orange Slovensko.

The 18th edition of Spectacular Slovakia with focus on Bratislava is on sale via the spectator.sk online shop or amazon.com.
