To bring along home from the journeys over the world something unique, typical, which will be reminding us forever our visit of a certain place, is a ´must have´ routine of all the passionate travellers. Little souvenirs from all corners of the world embellish our houses and after all the years remain in our hearts as a fragment of the country which we have brought with us.
Thanks to our rich culture and history, full of picturesque folk art, Slovakia too offers possibility to find here various souvenirs, which you can buy in shops or markets, to make a present for someone or to keep for yourself as an authentic item from our country. Those most popular souvenirs are for example ornamented, beautifully embroidered doilies and table-cloths, wooden mugs (crpák – originally intended for a milk from sheep), painted platters and magnets, celebrated ceramics from town of Modra, but also national jerseys of Slovak hockey team…. Indeed good idea is also to buy an excellent Slovak wine, a typical beverage of honey (medovina), or traditional brandy of plums – slivovica.
One of the most precious and beautiful souvenirs which you can bring home from Slovakia is also fujara – a melodical instrument of wood with very particular sound, once used by sheperds. Today, in tribute of fujara is held even an annual festival in village of Východná. The instrument was declared by UNESCO part of the world cultural heritage. Or will you like more valaska? A long ornamentally painted axe, in medieval times used also as an arm. Up to this day valaska is a par of one very temperamental, typical dance – odzemok. A beautiful and authentic souvenir can be also a lovely doll – ´shoopolienka´, made of dried leaves of maize.
