Slovakia, General Information

Slovakia became an independent state in January 1993 after Czechoslovakia split into its two constituent parts and entered the EU in 2004. Its total area is 48,845 km² and its total population is 5.4 million people. Its capital is Bratislava and its currency the Euro.

The country is in the heart of central Europe, linked to its neighbours by the River Danube. The Carpathian Mountains extend across the northern half of the country and include the High Tatras – a popular skiing destination and home to the country’s highest peak – the 2,655 m Gerlachovsky. The lowlands of the Danube plain provide a fertile farming region producing wheat, barley, potatoes, sugar beet, fruit, tobacco and grapes.
