An introduction to the Rusyn wooden architecture in Slovakia

Denisa Herelova is a Slovak-born writer who put together an interesting overview of the wooden churches of Eastern Slovakia at a site called suite101.com.

It's always comforting to see a writer who understands who the Rusyns are,

If you look at some of her other pieces, you'll learn about bryndza cheese, which she terms a "superfood," and pick up some more info if you're planning a trip to the homeland.

The site also offers an article full of tips on restaurants in Bratislava, the Slovak capital.

  1. TIM, nice work on these last 2 posts: "Rusyn Chinese" and "bryndza superfood." Nice change of pace. Somehow, though, I do not picture Pani Charlotte making egg rolls any time soon . . .
