European Parliament hosts ‘Magical Slovakia’ photo exhibition
‘I want to thank, first of all, the Slovak Presidency for the exhibition, and thank you very much for the opportunity to open it together, Prime Minister,’ Mr Schulz said, when launching the event along with Mr Fico. Thirty full-colour photographs are on show to present various beautiful sites in Slovakia, including mountains, spas, caves, towns and the picturesque wooden houses of Čičmany. The photographs on display show, among other things, Bratislava Castle, the towns of Banská Štiavnica and Kremnica, and St. Elisabeth’s Cathedral in Košice. During the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the EU, in addition to the exhibition at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the works of art will be on display at all Slovak embassies across the world.
The photographs are the work of Laco Struhár, who concentrates on landscape and advertising photography, but is also known for his work in architectural photography. Mr Struhár has won major awards for several of his 15 representative photographic publications. He has also produced the photographs for 56 representative wall calendars to be seen at several ministries and notable businesses in Slovakia.
