Molvania, birthplace of the polka and whooping cough, has often been overlooked as a tourist destination but thanks to this fully up-dated Jetlag Travel Guide the keen traveller 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; accommodation: Hotjl Palfvi is 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; and culture: the national anthem was chosen in 1987 as part of a competition, sung to the tune of 'What a Feeling' from "Flashdance", the third verse is generally considered optional.
