    This is the art (only one part) of Mr Poncak in the Zaborski theatre-hall. You must know each tile is 70cm, this complete figure is 5 meters (5.5 yards) high. The work of art is on marble-tiles and the figures are grinded/polised/cut in this hard material. There are many of this figures in the big entrancehall.

    Normally Grolsch (Dutch beer) is the best beer there is, but in Slovakia they have also good beers: Smädney Mnich, Saris and many others. So it is not necessary to take Grolsch with you on your trip to Slovakia.

    gypsies!

    i know that it is a touchy subject, but i think i better talk about it.

    slovak gypsies may sometimes move in bigger groups. they are not a violent gang but they tendency to be vocal is increased. so if you see a group of them shouting, it is normal, you don't have to worry. anyway, they can be really nice

    there are some streets where there are more gypsies living (e.g. tarasa sevcenku). you can see people standing out in the street discussing whatever, perfectly happy in their community. however, you may find these streets messy

    i don't know about any place where they have gypsy music in presov

    and well... sometimes you can have not so pleasant encounters with some individuals. i have been insulted several times but these are really rare things.

    The Zaborski Theatre is a beautiful building with great art of Mr Poncak, and this theatre has many great productions to offer.
    This picture is the end-scene of 'Dracula'.

    If you like art, than you like Presov-Slovakia.
    I've met Mr. Poncak (picture) and I admire his work in the 'Zaborski' theatre-hall.
