Have you ever pondered what Slovaks sing about in their folk songs? They can be great fun to listen but also give you great tips here and there, as well.

Slovakia’s folklore encompasses tales, dances, and songs. This week’s Spectacular Slovakia draws attention to traditional songs.

In the latest episode, you can learn just how many Slovak folk songs there are, who John is and why he is sung about by so many Slovaks, and what Východná, Terchová, and Detva have in common.

Nevertheless, the most essential part of the episode are the examples of traditional songs. Spectacular Slovakia will uncover where to find beautiful Slovak men, why Anička’s boots got wet, and what you can do with a red apple.
