  1. As a slovenska mamicka, I’ve always loved this song without knowing exactly what it was saying. Slovaks always embrace it when they sing it, and now I can see why. Thanks for the beautiful pictorial interpretation which captures the culture and landscape of Slovakia

    1. Yes, Beatrix — Something about this song seems to span centuries of wars to unite them in loss.

  2. Ahoj Marek,
    First, let me thank you for sharing these clever, thoughtful and well-crafted komiks. Lately I have been missing Slovakia, and these pages have made my day. I wonder if I might re-blog this page in a post I am writing about Slovak language learning on my site, Consider Culture. Len daj mi vedieť. Pekný deň!
