One wouldn't believe how difficult is to gather and then portray all informations about someone. Especially, when the person was a skillful scientist, gifted mentor, handy engeneer and a man with a very rich and eventfull history. Whole team agreed that Norbert Frištacký was really a Person with big P. Unfortunately, he was not our teacher and the more we know him, the more sorrow we feel. Therefore we all hope that this web page will display all facts and details for more people to know Norbert Frištacký better.


We would like to give thanks to all people who helped us, notably to: (without special order)
Mrs Frištacká, Martin Šperka, Mária Bieliková, Milan Kolesár, Dalimír Orfanus, Valéria Šimáková, all who helped us
