"The Goulash Train" stops in Andy Warhol's Rusyn backyard

The Warhol Museum of Modern Art

The Goulash Train, an interesting blog on travel through Central and Eastern Europe, has a piece today on a stop in Medzilaborce (Medžilabirci in Rusyn), the town near Andy Warhol's ancestral village of Mikova in northeast Slovakia. The blogger, "Wildroo," calls Medzilaborce's Warhol Family Museum of Modern Art one of the "stranger places of interest" in Slovakia. Unlike many visitors to the region, Wildroo gets the background of Andy and his ancestors just right.
