Our Travel Companions

Dobry den, Slovensko!
Population: 5.4 million. Area: 19,000 square miles (similar to Massachusetts and New Hampshire combined). Capital: Bratislava. Government: parliamentary democracy. Latitude: 48 degrees north (similar to Vancouver, Canada, and Paris, France). Famous for mountain hiking, folk traditions, ice hockey.
Spis: "speesh." Levoca, "LEH-voh-chah," population: 14,604.
On our cross-country trip through Slovakia, we traveled through the High Tatras Mountains, learned about the Roma (gypsy) culture, and dropped into the small medieval town of Levoca for lunch. And then: back on our fall-colored drive into rural Hungary (at right).
