Slovakia and the US are not so different (video included)

You have surpassed the United States in building malls, says Michael Dove, an American from Boston. An English teacher at the University of Matej Bel in Banská Bystrica, he considers language and natural beauty to be the biggest assets of Slovakia. The best parts of life in the Hron valley are hiking and cultural events. Dove wishes that attitudes toward foreigners with darker skin colour were more accepting.

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.
