I'm from a small village of 7000 souls called Báčsky Petrovec
in Serbia's northern province of Vojvodina
, in the south of one of its historical regions called Bačka
. I was however born in a hospital in Novi Sad
which is the capital of Vojvodina. Vojvodina is a unique region in Europe because it has six official languages, one of them being my own native Slovak
which is spoken by about 60.000 people.
