@Sviatogor I visited Slovakia three times, once as a tourist and two times educationally, but there was plenty of time for tourism too. Country is beautiful, there are pieces of history all around, natural sights are overwhelming. I always seen it as a kind of second country of mine before I went there. When I finally got there I felt like it is, people were very kind to me, especially if they knew that I am a Slovak coming from southern realms, they were amazed we preserved language and culture for so long. All of this is why I like the country and the people, whose mentality is very similar to ours (Southern), but the flaws are less expressed. I wouldn’t know if it’s “more eastern”, it probably is, if nothing else, it’s to the east from Czechia.
