20 years ago Czechoslovakia as a state ceased to exist, resulting in the "appearance" of two new independent states in Europe, the Czech and Slovak Republics. Apart from a short spell during WWII, this was the first time in history that Slovakia was recognised as an independent state.
To me, even though sporting an interest for CEE since forever, Slovakia was a mystery before moving here. These first months here have passed in a blur, but it is my intention to dig deeper into this society; it’s history, culture, language and politics.
Všetko najlepšie k narodeninám, Slovensko!
