"Slovakia, though not large in its breadth, possesses a great deal of diverse beauties. High up on rocky cliffs, where they grew out, often at unbelievable circumstances, in harmony with colors of the surroundings greenth, satisfy the eye and uplift the spirit. Without them, the country would certainly seem pooorer. Nevertheless, they practically became a materialized encyclopedia of history, the evidence of architectonic evolution, aesthetic feelings, invention and courage of their creators. They remind us our roots, of the time going by of caducity."
