Listen to the podcast:

Before leaving Slovakia, his first posting as an ambassador, Austrian Ambassador Helfried Carl stopped by the podcast studio to share some of his impressions while living among Slovaks for 4 ½ years, along with some tips for trips.

He suggests a trip to Komárno, for instance, which offers stories of some Austrian connections that you probably don’t know about. Why did he decide to skip travelling up Lomnický Štít and what is his favourite place in Bratislava?
