Revúca, Rimavská Sobota, and Rožňava. These are three centres of the historical GemerRegion in the southeast of central Slovakia. The whole region is most “famous” for having the highest unemployment in the country.
While young people are prone to leaving for a better future, American graduate Hannah Falchuk, featured on Spectacular Slovakia this week, went there to teach English. She spent one year at a grammar school in Revúca.
Although there is not much to see in the downtown of the city, aside from one of the first Slovak-language grammar schools on the territory of Slovakia, the surrounding rural area is a marvellous place to wander through.
