For a Brazilian, Winter in Slovakia a treat (video included)

Lourenço Maciel grew up in one of the world’s largest cities, Sao Paulo. However, he decided to start his university studies in tiny Bratislava, because he fell in love with Slovakia. Maciel thinks that generally Slovaks do not have such a good view of their country. He likes living here, loves Slovak people and even our winter.

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.
