#Slovakia in #Music: #Kristina and #Travnice…

Slovakia is probably best known as little brother to the Czech Republic and half of the former Czechoslovakia of Warsaw Pact fame in the Communist era. But there’s more to it than that, though, as this video shows. I myself only passed through the capital Bratislava through the night on a train from Prague to Budapest, but that much looked quite nice. It’s on my list for a return trip. This is the song Kristina sang for her Eurovision contest. Then there’s something straight out of the past, out of the heart of the Carpathian Mountains, and no more than a strong yodel or two from the Alps. Enjoy…
