Bagpipers’ culture is another successful project in Slovak Republic, which was listed on the UNESCO list of intangible heritage in 2015. The bagpipe tradition is present all over Slovakia with some regional differences. Whereas at the beginning of the 20th century bagpipers were present in hundreds of locations, today cca 100 bagpipers play and produce in Slovakia. The very distinctive sound of this musical instrument made from metal, wood and leather can be heard at folk festivals between June and September all over Slovakia.
