Last Day in Slovakia for King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima
Today, Tuesday March 9, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima spent the third and last day of the state visit to Slovakia by visiting the Tatra region, in northeastern Slovakia, accompanied by the President of the Slovak Republic, Zuzana Čaputová, and her partner Juraj Rizman.
The Royal Couple and the Presidential Couple paid a visit to an aid center for Ukrainian refugees in Poprad, a city at the foot of the High Tatra Mountains. They received a warm welcome by the Ukrainian children who are currently living in the center and then met with employes and volunteers to be informed about how they help the refugees with psychological help and childcare.
Afterwards the King, the Queen and the Presidential Couple visited Spišská Sobota, the most historically part of Poprad, where they visited the church of St. George.
Then the Royal Couple, along with President Čaputová and her partner, moved to the district town of Liptovský Mikuláš where they paid a visit to a school which “focuses on teaching democratic skills so that students learn to recognize disinformation”.
The state visit ended at the Tatra National Park that in 1993 was identified as natural, biospheric, reserve of UNESCO. During a tour they were informed by a guide about the area’s biodiversity and nature conservation.
