Abstract: The study outlines the factographic extralinguistic context of the selected parts of chapters 21 and 22 of the travel story Impressions from France by the Slovak writer Martin Kukučín.

It focuses on the author’s typical approach in textual construction combining historical facts, the author’s subjective points of view, and the description of everyday life in the streets of Paris, positively emphasizing the French people, their country and history.
