Wherever in the world Slovaks went, they brought their stories.



Tender hearts told great legends of magnificent creatures, frightening monsters and brave heroes. Tinkers in Germany, healers in Siberia, coal miners in Pennsylvania, stonemasons in New York and farmers in Canada, they all carried the wisdom and the magic of Slovak fairytales far and wide. These tales are the most precious family gifts, passed down from generation to generation -within and without Slovakia.


The power contained in their storytelling guided them to open their eyes to the invisible world, where love and truth always wins. And where every life and every struggle has a higher purpose.


In folk stories, millennia-old experiences of our ancestors seeking all that is bright and good in the world, was encoded in powerful symbols and metaphors.


Slovak fairytales allow us to peak into the world of those who came before us.


Theirs was a journey of hardship and obstacles that seemed insurmountable at times. Yet, they never gave up their beliefs in magic and miracles, and so, their fairytales speak of lives steeped in challenges but soothed by the deep knowing of the great mystery that guides all existence.

These magical tales eased many heavy hearts.


They encouraged tired minds to look for the sun stallion that charges into dark times to bring light and hope to people. The folk ballads narrated the epic quests of heroes determined to break the curse of fear, tears, suffering and unhappiness to reveal truth, restore peace, rescue freedom and celebrate love. These are the tales of the collective and individual pursuit of goodness that help us to grow, blossom and mature as a society but also as a species.
