Slovakia

I dont have some particular like/dislike attitude about a multi view card with many pictures (this one in particular has 16) but there is one thing i totally love about this card, and thats its vibrant colours...every single colour on this feels sooo lively! The skies, the mountains, the grass, the fields, the houses, the flowers...gives you some touch of reality with it all...i really really love it!!

This reminded me though of a card i have from Venice i think, with 100 small pictures...its an interesting one

here is a part of an interesting FAQ about Slovakia i came across:

Q: What is Slovakia like?
A: Slovakia is modern European country mixed with a deep rural tradition. Geographically, it is primarily a mountainous country with numerous winter activities. It has a continental European climate with moderate winters and warm summers. Most infrastructure and many of the tourist facilities are on par or near Western European standards.

Q: Who are the Slovaks?
A: The 5 million Slovaks are Slavic people, having a common cultural, historic and linguistic heritage with their fellow Slavs. Slavs number over 300 million and are the largest European ethnic and linguistic body. The group includes these nationalities: Belorussians, Bosnians, Bulgarians, Croats, Czechs, Macedonians, Montenegrians, Poles, Russians, Serbs, Slovaks, Slovenes and Ukrainians. Other ethnic Slavs such us Ruthenians, Sorbs and Wends do not have national homelands. The Slavic peoples are divided into three linguistic groups, West, East and South. Slovaks are part of the Western group that also includes Czechs and Poles
