About the song: 

Horehronie is an ethnic song about the beauty of the Slovak countryside.  Horehronie itself is an area in the centre of the country, high in the valley of the Upper River Hron.  As Slovakia is near the centre of Europe, and Horehronie is in the centre of Slovakia, it follows that Horehronie is at the very heart of Europe.

Kristína sings about how much she loves her country, and would not want to live anywhere else.

About the participant: 

Kristína was born in 1987 near the eastern Slovak city of Košice.  She met Martin Kavulič when she was at school, while learning singing, dance and the piano.

Her first single "I'm yours" was released in 2007, and this was followed by her début album "...ešte váham" ("I'm undecided") in 2008, which went platinum.  Her hits "Ešte váham" and "Vráť mi tie hviezdy" "Give me back the stars" have received over 5 million hits on Youtube.

Last summer she started work in her second album, from which the first single reached Number One, and also reached the Top 10 in the Czech Republic.

Her influences and idols include Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Destiny's Child.

About the selection: 

Slovakia had a three stage national selection, consisting of six quarter-finals, and two semi-finals, with the grand final on 27 February.  Sixty songs were whittled down to twelve for the final, which ended in a tie.  However, Kristína won the crucial public SMS vote, placing her above second place Mista.

Former Maltese entrant Fabrizio Faniello, along with his sister Claudia provided pre-contest and interval act entertainment during the final.

Kristína is joined on stage by backing vocalist Hanka Servická and four dancers.

Lyrics: 
Keď sa slnko skloní na Horehroní
Chce sa mi spievať, zomrieť aj žiť
Keď sa slnko skloní na Horehroní
Túžim sa k nebu priblížiť

Na tráve ležím a snívam 
O čom sama neviem    
V tom vánku, čo ma kolíše  
Keď je slnko najnižšie    

Najkrajšie stromy sú na Horehroní 
To tiché bratstvo vraví poď   
Sem sa vždy vrátim keď ma niečo zroní  
Vravia to stromy: z piece zhoď    

Na tráve ležím a snívam   
O čom sama neviem    
V tom vánku, čo ma kolíše   
Keď je slnko najnižšie     

Á... haleluja...     

Keď sa slnko skloní na Horehroní  
Tam niekde v ďiaľke náš zvon zvoní   
Keď má ma to bolieť tak nech ma bolí  
Raz sa to stratí do čiernej hory   

Na tráve ležím a snívam   
Oči tíško plačú    
V tom vánku, čo ma kolíše   
Keď je slnko najnižšie     

Á... á... á... á...     

Na tráve ležím a snívam   
Oči tíško plačú    
V tom vánku, čo ma kolíše   
Keď je slnko najnižšie     

Najkrajšie stromy sú na Horehroní
English translation of the lyrics: 
When the sun goes down in Horehronie
I want to sing, die and live
When the sun goes down in Horehronie
I wish I could get closer to the sky

I'm lying on the grass and dreaming
Of what, I don't even know
In the breeze that gently sways me
When the sun is at its lowest point

The most beautiful trees are in Horehronie
A silent brotherhood is telling that
I come back here when I feel sad
The trees are saying: shake it off

I'm lying on the grass and dreaming
Of what, I don't even know
In the breeze that gently sways me
When the sun is at its lowest point

Ah... hallelujah...

When the sun goes down in Horehronie
Out there somewhere far away our bell is ringing
When it hurts, let it hurt
One day it will vanish in the black mountain

I'm lying on the grass and dreaming
My eyes are crying softly
In the breeze that gently sways me
When the sun is at its lowest point

Ah... ah... ah... ah...

I'm lying on the grass and dreaming
My eyes are crying softly
In the breeze that gently sways me
When the sun is at its lowest point

The most beautiful trees are in Horehronie
