Obyvatelstvo Slovenska je velmi příjemné, pokud jde o návštěvníky. Rádi mluví svým vlastním jazykem, ale protože mnoho lidí nemluví slovensky, stále více a více z nich také mluví německy. Seznamte se legendy a ságy na Slovensku, se zvláštními památkami s názvem města nebo historickými události. Tohle je v podstatě pohled na zemi a Slováky.
