Genuine travel is so much more than just the scenery, it's also about the poetry, song and stories of a culture. Your time in this part of the world will become all the more significant if you take the time to study some day-to-day expressions and greetings in Slovak. "Smiem prosiť?" is Slovak for "Would you like to dance with me?" "Odkialʼ si?" is also good to know. It translates to "Where are you from?"
