Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to the analysis of the image of Slovakia which emerges discursively from guidebooks. The author analyzes, in order, the Polish, Slovakian and English discourses. As a result, the reader can observe three stories of Slovakia emerging – stories, which, paradoxically, can tell us more about the authors and the readers than about the place itself. The second part of the article presents the “discourse on Rome,” approached narratively. In the conclusion, the author proposes several lines of theoretical inquiry.
