Listen to the podcast:

Everyone in Slovakia should go to Modra at least once in their life, says American teacher, Grace, who has lived in Modra for seven months (and has been the only American there, apparently). The once royal town was the home of one of the most shining personalities of the history of Slovakia, Ľudovít Štúr, who is also responsible for how difficult the Slovak language is. Modra is just a short bus or car-ride away from the capital and is a destination for wine lovers and those partial to (or curious about) majolica.
