‘This book took me straight back to my holiday in Molvania: I intend to sue.’ Ben Schott

Molvania, birthplace of the polka and whooping cough, is often overlooked as a tourist destination but thanks to this fully up-dated Jetlag Travel Guide the keen traveler can now enjoy one of central Europe’s best-kept secrets.Everything you need to know about this unique nation, ‘a land untouched by modern dentistry’ is here including:

Useful phrases: Sprufki Doh Craszko?What is that smell?

Eating Out: As a rule, eating out in Molvania is quite cheap… but in some larger cities you may be expected to pay extra for a waiter with a moustache.

Accomodation: At the top end you can’t go past Hotjl Palfvi.It’s a 250-year-old Carmelite convent that has been tastefully restored with a real eye for period detail.For example, each room features a large wooden crucifix that opens to reveal a fully-stocked mini-bar.

Culture:The national anthem was chosen in 1987 as part of a competition, sung to the tune of ‘Oh What a Feeling’ from Flashdance, the third verse is generally considered optional.’
