The Slovak Spectator is Slovakia’s only English-language newspaper. It is published weekly by The Rock, s.r.o. publishing house and covers local news, culture and business. The company also publishes a magazine called Spex and five special publications that appear throughout the year, including the acclaimed Spectacular Slovakia travel guide, the Book of Lists business directory, and comprehensive guides to local real estate, investment environment and human resources.
The debut issue of The Slovak Spectator hit newsstands across Slovakia on March 1, 1995. The editorial philosophy of this independent paper is to offer readers accurate, reliable and unbiased information.
The Slovak Spectator was founded with the mission of being “the leading source of information about Slovakia in English.“ We are proud to say that in some respects, the paper already meets this goal. It has gained a reputation for balanced, thorough, innovative and engaging reporting. The paper and its staff have been quoted or cited by most major Slovak media and by some of the world’s leading media, including CNN, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Business Central Europe.
