The Vel­vet Her­itage

METROPOLE - Vienna in English - - CONTENTS - By Dardis Mcnamee, Pavol Múdry, Michaela Teren­zani, James Thom­son, Car­men Vi­ragova, Ben­jamin Wolf & Rick Zed­nik

In the se­cond part of our se­ries, we take a look on Slo­vakia’s path from a realm of the Hun­gar­ian half of the Em­pire to con­sti­tu­tent part of Cze­choslo­vakia, to to­day's thriv­ing in­de­pen­dent repub­lic. A map pro­vides you with all the back­ground for our fea­ture on Slo­vakia’s wind­ing road to na­tion­hood. Our editor in chief talks with Slo­vak jour­nal­ist Pavol Múdry on what has changed in the decades of tran­si­tion and Slo­vak-amer­i­can Rick Zed­nik re­mem­bers Slo­vakia’s day of founding in 1993. Fi­nally, we picked the best places and ac­tiv­i­ties to head east!
