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.
