Slovak Constitution Day History

Constitution Day in Slovakia commemorates the adoption of the Slovak constitution. On 1 September 1992, the former country of Czechoslovakia had begun to dissolve and led to the establishment of Slovakia and its new constitution. Although the new constitution was adopted on 1 September, it wouldn't become effective until a month later. Finally, on 1 January 1993, all of the provisions of the constitution came into effect as Czechoslovakia ceased to exist and the Slovak Republic was officially established.

Constitution Day in Slovakia is celebrated annually on 1 September. The holiday has been celebrated since 1993 and continues to be celebrated across the country.
