#4 Scottish man stars in Czecho-Slovak reality show 

A performance of the Scottish man who joined the reality show Czechoslovakia's Got Talent in 2011, who terrified at least one of the jurors. Stevie Starr introduced himself as a “professional regurtitator”, who swallows various items, including a pool ball for example. He is also known from other countries which organise this talent competition.

#3 Walking on ice

Two men walk on the biggest and deepest mountain lake in the High Tatras - the Veľké Hincovo Pleso. The water froze in very still weather, so the ice is crystal clear and you can see to the bottom. They admire the clear frozen lake, but don't want to go farther, because it can be dangerous. They also wonder whether ice-skating would be a possibility.

#2 Horehronie at Eurovision

Slovak singer Kristína represented Slovakia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, Norway in 2010. She sings in Slovak about the Slovak Horehronie Region with beautiful nature, which is situated on the southern side of the Low Tatras.

 

#1 Swimming babies
