Wonderful Photos of Slovakia in the 1990s After it became an Independent Nation

Slovakia is a country located in central Europe with a population of 5.4 million. The capital is Bratislava and it is also the largest city. Slovakia became a sovereign state in 1992 led by Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar. The Slovaks and Czechs decided peacefully to separate.

Slovakia is a landlocked country and it has borders with Poland, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Ukraine. It has stunning landscapes, valleys, caves, lakes, mountains, picturesque castles, and historic cities. The country maintains a combination of a market economy with a comprehensive social security system. Citizens are provided with universal health care, free education, and one of the longest paid parental leaves in the OECD.
