Slovakia: Hotel Kyjev

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Slovakia, Arts & Culture, Development, Governance, History

The Foreigner's Guide to Living in Slovakia writes [1] about plans to demolish Hotel Kyjev in Bratislava: “Though I agree that buildings like the Hotel Kyjev are part of Slovakia‚Äôs history, I disagree that they are part of true Slovak culture. Are the communist principles, good or bad, embodied in socialist-realism architecture a part of Slovak culture simply because Slovaks survived through those 40 years of it?”
