Richard Marcinko, a proud Slovak-American, founding commander of US Navy SEAL Team 6, passed away last Saturday at the age of 81.

Marcinko was born on November 21, 1940 in Lansford, Pennsylvania to a family of Slovak miners who emigrated to the U.S. in search of work opportunities.

He enlisted in the Navy in 1958 and worked his way up to the level of commander. He served in two tours in Vietnam earning numerous accolades including the Silver Star, four Bronze Stars, two Navy Commendations Medals and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Silver Star.

Following the Iran hostage crisis of 1979, during which he worked in the Terrorist Action Team tasked with developing a plan to free American hostagers, Marcinko was asked to develop a team specializing in countering terrorist threats.

He named the team "SEAL TEAM 6" - leading it from August 1980 to July 1983 - leaving behind a lasting legacy in the field of special operations.

Our deepest condolences to his family & friends. 🙏

Share if you appreciate the incredible sacrifice, work and dedication of servicemen and servicewomen.

Just days away from celebrating the most amazing time of the year, #Bethlehem light arrived and lighted up Slovak regions.

Slovak scouts received the Peace Light from Bethlehem from their Austrian counterparts for the 32nd time. Slovaks brought the light to the Polish and Ukrainian border to hand it over to scouts from the neighbouring countries the following day.

Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová accepted the Peace Light on Monday, December 13, and then the light was carried up to the iconic Lomnický Štít.

#HappyBirthday Tatra National Park - #TANAP!

The oldest national park in #Slovakia was established #OTD 72 years ago in northern Slovakia. Comprising the mountain area of High Tatras, the park provides a unique conservation of fauna and flora in the highest European mountain east of the Alps.

Together with the Polish national park established 5 years later, TANAP has been included in the #UNESCO biospheric reserves list in 1993.

In its area, the Tatra National Park contains the highest peak of Slovakia, Gerlachovský štít (8711 ft.), some 100 mountain lakes “pleso” and one of the symbols of Slovakia - Kriváň. Its famous and rare inhabitants include chamois ”kamzík”, golden eagle “orol”, brown bear “medveď” or alpine marmot “svišť”.

Let us know which view to TANAP do you like most?

Slovakia's intangible heritage has expanded. 👏

In early December six new things were inscribed in the intangible cultural heritage list:

Črpák – a wooden mug with a decorated handle used by shepherds.

Throwing dances from the Myjava-Trenčín region – old dances consisting of several elements, but lifting a female partner is the most important. The partner then lands on the man’s thigh or shoulder.

Trdelník from Skalica – a popular pastry resembling a spit cake coated in crushed walnuts and sugar, which has been made in Skalica for nearly two centuries. In 2007, the Skalica pastry obtained the EU’s protected geographical indication. Trdelník is a perfect companion to local Red wine “Skalický Rubín.”

Jánošík tradition – despite the tradition of mythical national hero being linked to the village of Terchová, it has grown into a nationwide tradition over the years, which is expressed in film, folklore, literature, theatre and the like.

Goral culture – the rich culture of people living in the north of Slovakia is based on the shepherds’ tradition, and it includes dialects, music, dances, crafts and festivities unique to the Gorals – strong bond between Slovakia and Poland.

Karička from Parchovany – a women’s dance performed in a circle. Dancers themselves sing songs, whose tempo is gradually increasing.

Find here list of all 32 heritage items, ranging from music and dances to events and ornaments ➡️

Iconito & FS Zemplín - Korene (Official video)

This beautiful video captures the diversity of the regions in Slovakia through music.

The "Korene" project is the work of the young Slovak music group ICONITO and the Zemplín Folklore Ensemble from Michalovce. It is a musical work with dance elements, the aim of which is to promote the enlightenment of traditional folk culture.

They are bringing the forms of Slovak folklore closer as the song captures 6 regions of Slovakia. It shows not only the diversity of our culture but especially the joys of life and sorrows in which you will be able to find yourself. Listen to this song and remember where your roots are and especially how important they are.

#OTD 152 years ago, a Slovak-American businessman and banker Michal Bosák, was born in the village of Okrúhle, in the Svidník Region. His signature appeared on a 10-dollar banknote, the #PittsburghAgreement and he was one of the most important figures in Slovak expatriate life in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century.

He came to the United States with just a single dollar in his pocket, but thanks to his hard work, skills and business acumen, he became one of the richest and most influential Slovaks in the U.S. He started his career as a sorter of coal, later worked as a miner and construction worker on the railway. He bought a pub which eventually became a center for local Slovak expats and a shipping agency. During the WW1 as the owner of several private banks, Bosák raised money for independent Slovakia and published the “Slovenská obrana” magazine. He died in 1937 in Pennsylvania.

His live journey is mapped in the book “Michal Bosak: An American Banker from Saris”. In 1999, the Michal Bosak association was founded in Slovakia to publish materials about him and to organize events to support education of students in economics, business and art. #Impact #SlovakiainUS

This year, St. Nicholas proved to be very creative and - even though virtually - he didn´t forget to pay us a visit yesterday evening. 🙃

Before he showed up, together with our friends from Slovak American Society of Washington, DC and Global Slovakia, we explored some of the traditional Slovak Christmas habits including what´s on the Slovak Christmas Eve dinner table.

Ambassador Javorčík cheered up the younger audience with Daniel Hevier ´s "Vianočná pošta" - a beautiful series of classical poems that explore the mystery of Christmas through childrens´ eyes.

We would love to hear of your St. Nicholas Day or Christmas Day traditions, let us know in the comments. 🎄✨

Oravský hrad / Orava Castle is an eerie and majestic place, built high up on a rocky cliff over the winding Orava river. It is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved medieval castles in Slovakia, dating back to the 13th century. Like an “eagle nest” is one of the greatest tourist attractions of northern Slovakia.

Its long history starts as a military barracks built after a Mongol invasion to defend what was then the Kingdom of Hungary. Seven centuries later it still stands, now an elaborate neo-Gothic castle that holds many unique myths and legends, including production of iconic #Nosferatu (1922) with unforgettable Max Schreck´s Dracula.

ZÁLEŽÍ NÁM NA SLOBODE VIEROVYZNANIA ALEBO PRESVEDČENIA☝ Na ministerskom fóre Medzinárodnej aliancie pre slobodu náboženstva alebo prevedčenia (Aliancia) som dnes tlmočila, že Slovenská republika🇸🇰 kladie veľký dôraz na podporu ľudských práv a demokracie vo svete🌎. 🔸️Jednou z priorít našej hodnotovej zahraničnej politiky je náboženská sloboda, ktorá je v mnohých krajinách hrubo porušovaná. Aliancia, ktorej je Slovenská republika zakladajúcim členom, by mala venovať systematickejšiu pozornosť ochrane práv náboženských menšín. 🔸️Našim spoločným cieľom je presadzovať dodržiavanie slobody vierovyznania, bez ohľadu na región, v ktorom žijeme alebo naše politické či náboženské presvedčenie. 🔸️Každý má právo slobodne si vybrať akúkoľvek vieru, zmeniť náboženstvo alebo sa rozhodnúť pre žiadnu vieru. 🔸️Od posledného fóra Aliancie, ktoré sa konalo minulý rok, Aliancia reagovala na nezvestné jezídske ženy a deti unesené ISIS, naliehala na všetky strany v Afganistane, aby vytvorili inkluzívnu vládu, rešpektujúcu účasť žien a členov náboženských menšinových skupín a konala tiež v mnohých ďalších prípadoch na celom svete, v záujme zabezpečenia práva jednotlivca na slobodu náboženského vyznania alebo viery.

10.11.1919 SA NARODIL MICHAL STRENK 🪖 Pred 102 rokmi sa v obci Jarabina 🇸🇰 do gréckokatolíckej rodiny Vasiľovi Strenkovi a Marte Strenkovej-Grofikovej narodil syn Michal. Ako šesťročné dieťa odišiel so svojimi rodičmi do USA. 🇺🇸 Vyštudoval strednú školu v Pensylvánii a v októbri 1939 sa prihlásil do námornej pechoty. 🪦 Padol 1.marca 1945 po zásahu šrapnelom z americkej lode, 🛳 keď do piesku kreslil náčrt novej akcie. Slávnym sa stal vďaka záberu reportéra 📸 Associated Press, Joea Rosenthala, ktorý zachytáva druhé vztyčovanie americkej vlajky na vrchu 🌋 Suribači sopečného ostrova Iwo Jima 🇯🇵 (prvá vlajka vztýčená dve hodiny predtým a pred príchodom veliteľa bola príliš malá). Dobytia ostrova, na ktorom vztyčoval túto vlajku sa nedožil. Pochovaný je na Arlingtonskom národnom cintoríne, hrob č. 7179, Sekcia 12. 🪖 Jeho brat Peter Strank slúžil počas vojny v južnom Pacifiku na lietadlovej lodi 🚢 USS Franklin.
