Happy Postcrossing from... Slovakia

My 8th postcard from this collection arrived a few days ago. I got it through a swap with Lubeno, who is from Trencin, where the castle on the vintage stamp of former Czechoslovakia is located.
Besides the castle of Trencin, some of the most well-known attractions in the country are the castle of Bratislava and the most famous statue of the capital, Čumil, "the observer", which represents a worker from the communist era taking a break or maybe trying to peek under the ladies' skirts; the wooden church in Tvrdosin; the ice cave at Dobsinka, classified as a World Heritage Site; the Cathedral of St. Elizabeth in Kosice. It is also worth exploring the Tatra Mountains and discovering the country's castles.
When it comes to food and drinks, the products that deserve to be highlighted are Bryndzové halušky (one of the national dishes of Slovakia that consists of baked pieces of potato dough and soft sheep's cheese, optionally sprinkled with cooked pieces of bacon) and Borovička, an alcoholic drink flavored with juniper berries.
