One of the most delightful things about living or visiting Slovakia are the surprises you find. Whimsical statues celebrate men in manholes, a paparazzi may poke a lens from around a corner. There are street performers who delight. Two Hot Chocolate shops, one in Bratislava and one in Poprad, were decorated by Children’s Theater set designers. OK, so the plaque commemorating the first witch burning is not some whimsical, but it was a surprise.
