The main intention of the paper is to discern particular female features in the travel story that belonged to the most popular literary genres of the 19th century. The travel story may be considered a male genre as women writers hardly took a share in creating its modern shape. The genre of travel story was very important for the Slovak literature of the 19th century: according to Zlatko Klatik, a specific Slovak variant of this genre was created, which he calls 'the ideological travel story', in order to convey both the ideas of national sovereignty and co-operation of Slavonic nations. Regarding this context, the paper is aimed at examining how all the features of this male genre were modified in the only one Slovak ideological travel story of the 19th century written by a woman - 'Pani Georgiadesova na cestach. Vesely cestopis do Prahy na narodopisnu vystavu' by Terezia Vansova.
