Bratislava: Film Club Nostalgia | Englishman in Slovakia

Cinema can die suddenly. The last half a century has borne out the truth of that statement. And with that death comes the death of something else: a certain age-old glamour, perhaps.

EU Migrant Crisis: Slovakia promotes Gabcikovo camp as answer to refugee problem

EU Migrant Crisis: Slovakia promotes Gabcikovo camp as answer to refugee problem | Slovakia.Slowakei.LaSlovaquie.Slowacja.Szlovákia | Scoop.it
Slovakia, which holds the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU, has showcased the Gabčíkovo camp near Bratislava as an example that intergovernmental solutions can work better than the Commission’s relocation system based on mandatory quotas. On Saturday (2 July) the Slovak presidency took a group of 58 Brussels journalists to Gabčíkovo, in the Trnava Region, on the border with Hungary, some 50 kilometres from Bratislava, to showcase a refugee camp run in cooperation with Austria. The previous day, the Slovak Prime Minister, Robert Fico, and other officials had stated that Gabčíkovo was a proof that the country was unfairly criticised for not doing enough to share the burden of the refugee crisis the EU is faced with.
