Description This paper will capture the perception of Czechs by the Slovak nation. It will focus on the depiction of the Czech nation within the Slovak literature, especially in the travelogues written by Terézia Vansová (1857-1942) and Jozef Miloslav Hurban (1817-1888). These literary works, Mrs. Georgiadesová on the road (1897) and The journey of a Slovak to his Slavic brothers in Moravia and Bohemia (1839), describe the journeys on the Czech territory and depict the perception of the Czech nation as a whole, but they also focus on the individual national specifics.
