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.
