The travelogue 'Mrs Georgiadesova on her travels' written by Theresa Vansova is an original record of some Slovak patriot´s visit to the Panslavic Exhibition in Prague held in 1895. Then Prague was the place where the stimuli for the cooperation of the Slavs used to come from. The writer deeply appreciates the Czech´s fraternal empathy with Slovaks in the period of Hungarianization and focuses on national education in her narration. The travelogue also includes a detailed description of the exhibits and the atmospehere at that great event. The exhibition represented a symbolic world where the Slovaks could see themselves from a distance in the scale models and so the trip was also considered an allegorical journey to their self-awareness. Unlike literary genres of high culture, the marginal genre of travelogue allows Vansova to experiment with the language, which she does in an original way by breaking the rules of its rigid official form. The natural language used by Johanka, the narrator, reflects the author's desire to establish a closer relationship with the reader, to be more communicative. The travelogue 'Mrs Georgiadesova on her travels' does not only deal with the conflict between idealism (romanticism) and realism; it present us with a wider range of issues directly affecting the relationship between the language and the reader, the relationship between the citizen and the nation as well as other nations, the problem of modality and the artistic transformation of the national characteristics.
