„That’s so Slovak…“

The location and specific historical experience of Slovakia caused different cultural traditions and populations to meet and mix on its territory. The result of these processes are various nuances and peculiarities that can be surprising, confusing or unexpected. The experts from Mareena have therefore prepared a series of workshops, which help newcomers to understand not only Slovak, but also the local environment and the behavior of local residents.

The workshops are planned in respective months. Follow the program, so you can register in time.
