Slovak culture reflects rich folk traditions, in addition to broader European influence. There are numerous aspects to our culture:
Slovakia is replete with gothic churches, medieval towns, majestic mountains and looming castles along bucolic rural landscapes. Fittingly, legend after ledge arose in such surroundings.
From music and dance ensembles, to handicrafts, open-air markets and festivals, folk traditions are alive and well in modern-day Slovakia.
Slovak music tells a story. Sounds of the soulful fujara, liturgical traditions, classical composers, village celebration songs and contemporary Slovak music are all part of Slovak life.
If your interested in Slovak or Central/Eastern European culture and art will find no shortage of folklore and legends, music, films, art, and literature to give voice to the country, its people, and their concerns.
