Not many people make it to this small, landlocked country, one of the least-visited in all of Europe. And when they do, they often pronounce it as “mold-doh-vah.”
The proper way to pronounce this country (which incidentally boasts an excellent wine scene) is with the “o” pronounced as an “a” and the last “a” as an “uh” — confusing!
The proper pronunciation is “mahl-doh-vuh.”
