      Slovakia National Day

    • Even if the date of August 29th is more famous, (anniversary of the national uprising to fight against the occupation of the country by the Nazis which burst into 1944), Slovakia National Day is January 1st. On this day, the country commemorates its independence.
      The fate of Slovakia was often connected to that of the Czech Republic. During several decades, both countries were part of the same State: the Czechoslovakia. This state was a member of the Communist Bloc before the "velvet revolution", in 1989.
      In September, 1992, the National Council of the Slovak Republic approved its Constitution and on January 1st, 1993 a new State was born.
