“This is how I heard it.” or “Old people told me that.” Storytelling is a craft that has grown into a treasured pastime and integral part of Slovakia's cultural heritage. Stories were told at weddings, in the vineyards, or by neighbours and grandparents.
However, storytelling is becoming a forgotten art in our modern, technologically-advanced era.
This week, Spectacular Slovakia will take you on a trip to the Hont Region, in the south of central Slovakia, to tell you more about storytelling and tales typical for this region. For once, these tales will not involve Jánošík, a national hero, but rather Nácko and Geľo Sebechlebský, comical characters from Hont.
So sit back, pour yourself a cup of tea and have a listen as we tell you tales of bulls and a gypsy named Ďuro.
