The time of Slovakia has now come.
It is possible for the population to recognize Slovakia's neighbours through the association with meals, beverages, beautiful towns or well-known cultural and social happenings. However, Slovakia is very" hidden". Some ( (including myself) lovingly refer to Slovakia as the "Hidden Jewel in the Heart of Europe". How can this jewel really be kept from the outside worid?
Since moving to Slovakia and discovering how nice the countryside is, I have been struggling to realise that nobody really seems to know anything about Slovakia at home. In spite of Slovakia's unbelievable travelling potentials, however, no one (...) knows anything about Slovakia, especially in the West.
There are many who can hardly tell where Slovakia is on the European continent card, let alone its capitol. You think that Slovenian is the formal lingua franca, the distance is judged by how far the place is from Prague and Czechoslovakia is apparently still very much intact. It is possible to recognize Slovakia's neighbours through their association with meals, beverages, beautiful towns or well-known cultural and politics happenings.
But the land that lies in the midst of all these countries is still difficult to grasp and a cybercode. There is, among other things, the past of repression in Slovakia and the land, which is still relatively isolated even after its 1993 autonomy; there is the education system in Western Europe, which in my opinion was too much geared to the "West" and too little to the other side of Europe; and there is Slovakia's own role in its own mystical character, with a lack of interest (or means?) in it.
It is also a good idea to encourage Slovakia outside its frontiers and to gradually transform the corrupt picture of Slovakia as something backward, eastern, undeveloped and degrading into a more real picture of access, attractiveness, worthy to be visited and, perhaps more important, non-Eastern bloc. However, it is comprehensible that the conditions of a new independent regime 25 years ago may have compelled Slovakia to look much more inward than outwards.
Concentrate on developing your land before you invite others to look at it. However, although Slovakia is a young nation, it is one of the most rapidly expanding European countries. The mastery of Englishspeaking languages quickly spreads throughout the whole land. There seems to be no talk of a backward and under-developed Slovakia.
In the last few years I have taken my relatives and my boyfriend around the whole county more than once and visited all the hotspots and more. It' s interesting to say that some of these people were very hesitant to come here - not because of me or my woman, but because they did not know what to look for in Slovakia, apart from what the stereo types were giving up.
But every one of these guests finally returned home with a completely new picture and a new view of Slovakia. So without sounding too much like travelling advertising, why not let the outside world enjoy the advances Slovakia is making?
You are invited to explore the High Tatras in either season, explore the stone rooms of the old ruined castles, go down the tunnel of one of the many caverns, sample the many original wine, see the self-proclaimed European center, take the Crowning Path through Bratislava or take the so-called "Gothic Road" between southern and northern Slovakia and finish your trip at the beautiful Ko?ice Cloister in the south.
These are just some of the big things you can see or do in Slovakia. However, without adequate information to the outside community about what to look for in a land like Slovakia, many will still see Slovakia on a par with everything they think they know about former Eastern Europe.
Present the outside worlds the unique landscape, natural beauties, historical and historical monuments of Slovakia. Let Slovakia at last emerge from the shadow and begin to glitter.
