Slovakia, as most of states in the Europe has quite rich history. From first Celtic tribes, to roman villages, Great Morave, Greater Hungary,

Two world wars... Changed Slovakia greatly. Let's take a short tour to the history of Slovakia.

First great territory on the lands of Slovakia was Principality of Great Morave, also known as Svatopluk's Empire. It covered major part of central

Europe, and was one of the most important early medieval European states.

As time fled, Slovakia joined The Greater Hungary, for more than 900 years. The Medieval age, Reinassance fled, and many cities were built. The

Bratislava was this time very important city, one of the most important in whole Kingdom.

After the World War I, when Greater Hungary split to many other states, Slovakia joined state Czechoslovakia, with Czech nation. But, the

second world war after that split the state again to two, Czech part was occupied by Germany, and Slovakia became puppet state. But, Slovakia

was almost unaffected by war in this state, and its inhabitants lived safe and happy lives.

Soon, the Germany was defeated and Socialists took over newly formed Czechoslovakia. But, in year 1968. Slovakia revolted against Communist totality.

The Soviet army marched to the Slovak territories, and occupied them, to ensure safety. After that, they left, but it is very discussed moment in

Slovak history, considered very inadequate and unfair.

To the year 1989, Slovakia was part of Socialist Czechoslovakia, greatly influenced by the Soviet Union.

After that, the Socialism fell, and Czechoslovakia soon split. The Slovakia was becoming more economically and technologically advanced afterwards, and finally in year 2004 it joined European Union and the present ages begun. Our journey to the history ended, hope you enjoyed it.
