Slovakia: Treasures in the Heart of Europe Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Wed, Sep 13, 2017 -- 12:00 AM

A country of lush forests and mountains surrounded by hidden hills, Slovakia is a land rich with historical and cultural treasures. Centrally located in Europe, Slovakia was obscured for centuries within the Austro-Hungarian Empire and later by the establishment of Czechoslovakia, and has remained relatively unknown to much of the world.
In this program, host Pat Uskert and Slovak guide Mila Kissova explore the country's history, culture and breathtaking landscapes, and spotlight the many castles and medieval towns - from the capital city of Bratislava, located on the Danube, to the rugged peaks of the High Tatra Mountains. The travel documentary features modern and ancient castles, historic cathedrals, a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum, music and dance festivals, traditional villages, hikes in national parks, and treks in the Tatra Mountains. For both travelers and history lovers, it promises an exciting journey into lands seldom traveled.
