Slovakia – A family atmosphere (video included)

“It’s really difficult to be the friend of a Slovak,” says Daniel Vera, a PhD and teacher from Madrid, who lives in Bratislava. Two years ago, before Vera came to Slovakia as an Erasmus student, he thought he was going to country similar to Ukraine. Now he is enjoying himself, but notes that people are not used to the Spanish temperament.

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.
