  • The official term for the country is the Slovak Republic. This should be used for formal purposes but both the Slovak Republic and Slovakia refer to the nation.
  • Slovak is used to refer to a person who comes from the Slovak Republic, or the language of Slovakia or as adjective.
  • You should avoid using the term 'Slovakian', a less common equivalent to Slovak. Though certain references recognize the term, it is not used in official environments.

  • The national anthem of Slovakia is Nad Tatrou sa blyska or Lightning Over the Tatras.
  • The majority of the Slovak Republic is Roman Catholic (60.4%).

  • Their form of currency is the euro which is equivalent to 1.2699 U.S. dollars.
  • The Slovak euro design depicts Krivan, a symbolic mountain in the High Tatras, Bratislava Castle, and the coat of arms of Slovakia.
