Slovakian History

Throughout its history, the Slovak Republic has been overshadowed and sometimes dominated by a succession of foreign powers, including Hungary, Germany, the Soviet Union and, most recently, the Czech Republic. The separation of Czechoslovakia into its constituent parts the Czech and Slovak Republics on 1 January 1993 was one of the rare occasions in history that two nations have accomplished this peacefully. It also marked the emergence of an independent and sovereign Slovak nation for the first time and now the whole world can see the true Slovakia. In 2004 Slovakia joined the European Union thus establishing itself in the European market and soon they will be joining NATO.
