Grow your love in a love bank

The Citizen (KZN) - - Front Page -

Banksa Sti­avnica – How do you make your love grow? De­posit it in a love bank, of course.

The vaults of Slo­vakia’s Love Bank are cov­ered in the 2 900 verses of a ro­man­tic poem and each de­posit box is filled with keep­sakes, such as wed­ding rings, World War II let­ters and even ticket stubs from the first movie that cou­ples in love saw to­gether.

The ex­hi­bi­tion in Ban­ska Sti­avnica is housed in the cel­lar of the in­spi­ra­tion for the 1846 poem Ma­rina – whose par­ents mar­ried her off to another man rather than let­ting her wed poor stu­dent and poet An­drej Slad­kovic.

“I think the story is great when love, no mat­ter the hur­dles, lasted for­ever,” said Eliska Gal­isova, who was yet to choose what trin­ket her and boyfriend Ma­tus Rezny would leave for all-time. –
