PICTURE OF THE WEEK
The leader of the Slovak National Revival in the 19th century and the author of the Slovak Language standard, Ľudovít Štúr, is encouraging the citizens of Modra in western Slovakia to wear a mask amid the coronavirus disease outbreak:
Stay at home because there is a plague spreading outside, people of Modra. And cover your gob [huba] and snout [frňák], at least, with a handkerchief [šnuptychel] to stay healthy because that’s what still matters the most!„
The photomontage appeared on Modra's official Facebook page on March 18, 2020.
Birds will soon return to the Gemer historical region, where the Hrhov ponds are located. While here, visitors can also see the Včeláre quarry and the Turňa cement plant.
