About the book

In the book, I will show you the holidays and food customs in Croatia in a slightly different way, and for friends from Croatia, the customs in Slovakia, as Easter and Christmas take place during the calendar year.

The text is written in Slovak and at the same time in Croatian. Certainly, our nations will better discover the various interesting aspects of our cuisines in Slovakia and Croatia this way.

I collected the recipes from my mother, Emília Dlouhá born Vörösová (78), who is an excellent cook and taught me. Friends and family here in Croatia, but also from Slovakia, contributed to me.


Rys výnimočný lovec

The lynx is one of the most mysterious inhabitants of the forest. He survived only thanks to the fact that he can hide himself perfectly from our eyes. A fleeting encounter with him in his natural environment is a feast for every nature lover.

The lynx is our largest feline, figuratively speaking – our Slovak or European leopard. We know very little about his life. The fascinating information given to us in this book by Ivan Kňaze, an avid observer and connoisseur of Slovak fauna, is all the more valuable.

From literature, research and, above all, from his own observations, he put together an intriguing mosaic of revelatory knowledge and stories, with which he plastically paints a multidimensional picture of a mysterious lynx and various aspects of his life, habits, nature, emotions, in short, everything that belongs to the knowledge of this extraordinary creature. We learn where and how the lynx can hide from us, and why the lynx is a truly exceptional hunter.

The text is complemented by hundreds of the author’s authentic photographs.


Vinohradnícke povesti

Viticulture has been a part of human culture since time immemorial. Cultivating the vine, cultivating juicy grape berries and turning them into good wine is an art that people have been developing into ever more perfect forms for centuries. And Slovakia inextricably belongs to the history of viticulture, because viticulture traditions on the slopes of the Low Carpathians date back to the times of the ancient Celts and Romans! Over the centuries, even millennia, all kinds of interesting things have happened, and the vineyard yards are covered with a magical web of stories, mysteries, secrets...

In the book, which we are now bringing to you in the second, edited and supplemented edition, you will get a glimpse into one of the most traditional wine-growing regions of Slovakia - ancient Račišdorf, today's Rača. You will learn why in ancient times the famous tavern on the bank of the Račie stream burned down, why the shepherd Viatek cursed the bandit, how the Račišdorf shenkeeper outwitted the Mr. Grim, about the magical crampon, the hard-working Vinck and many other secrets that human memory has preserved. We add fragments of old viticultural songs, prayers, wisdom and interesting facts about the secrets of the viticultural craft.
