Introduction
In 1918 the Slovaks and Czechs formed Czechoslovakia, which became a Soviet controlled communist nation following World War II. But as Soviet influenced waned, Czechoslovakia was freed from its influence. On January 1, 1993, the Slovaks and the Czechs agreed to separate and become independent nations. Slovakia joined both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004. Despite a history of occupation, Slovakia has managed to maintain its culture.

A landlocked country located in the center of Europe, Slovakia’s lifeline to its neighbors is the Danube River. It is bordered by Poland and the Czech Republic to the north; Ukraine to the east; Hungary to the south; and Austria to the west. The Carpathian Mountains span the northern half of the country.

There are 5.4 million people in Slovakia, the majority ethnic Slovaks with smaller populations of Hungarians, Romas, Ukranians, and others. Similarly, Slovak is the official language with Hungarian, Rome, and Ukranian also spoken. There are three primary Slovak dialects, common to the country’s western, central, and eastern regions.
