Slovakia Today, English Language Current Affairs Programme from Slovak Radio
The High Frequency Coordination Conference (HFCC) came back in the Slovak capital, where shortwave radio providers from all over the world convened in order to ensure shortwave radio continues to broadcast without interruption.

People have been bathing in the healing waters of Piešťany since the Stone Age, with early settlers discovering this geothermal mineral spa long before they had developed writing, with the first written mention of the town being from the year 1113. To find out how modern technology has blended with ancient healing techniques, I took a trip inland to the famous Thermia Palace at Piešťany Spa.
