As many foreigners live in Slovakia, it is time for Spectacular Slovakia to set out on a trip outside the country again. This week, Wales will find itself in the spotlight thanks to Cardiffian Mike Valek. He currently lives in Piešťany.

In the podcast, Mr. Valek not only talks about Wales, but also compares it to Slovakia. He claims both countries are similar.

Spectacular Slovakia will, therefore, tell you who Owain Glyndŵr and Dylan Thomas were and where to find Snowdonia. In addition, you will be taken to Cardiff, beautiful beaches and to Hay-on-Wye, the town of books.

Whereas Mr. Valek will give listeners his views of Slovakia and Slovaks, Gwyneth Angharad from YouTube will teach us two phrases in Welsh: “Ti’n iawn?” (Y’alright?) and ‘Ydw, diolch.” (Yes, thanks.) in this week's episode.
