Výstava Did you know? This is Slovakia / Valmiera
Did you know that one of the world’s largest companies in the field of IT security was founded by Slovaks? Have you heard that there is a flying saucer at the top of the bridge over the Danube? Did you know that Slovakia is the world's leading producer of cars per capita? And have you heard that the first skyscraper in China was built based on a design by a Slovak architect?
The exhibition Did you know? This is Slovakia highlights unique features of Slovakia from past and present through brief descriptions (for example, the company ESET, Slovak success stories from abroad, Slovakia’s castles, traditions, mineral springs and automotive industry).
The exhibition covers 42 themes displayed on 11 banners, with interesting facts about Slovakia complemented by photographs and drawings. Each banner displays up to four themes. The exhibition is in English, French and German.
The concept originated in 2014 in the form of 12 descriptions printed on a folding display board.
