Slovak Constitution Day

Slovak Constitution Day in
Days to go: 

Slovakia Constitution Day is dedicated to the commemoration of the adoption of the Slovak Constitution on 1st September 1992. It stands as a pivotal moment in Slovak history, marking the establishment of an independent Slovak Republic following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. Constitution Day serves as a reminder of Slovakia's commitment to democracy, the rule of law, and human rights, reflecting the shared values of the European Union.

In the backdrop of the Velvet Revolution in 1989, the Slovak National Council debated on the content and importance of the country's constitution for several years. The adoption of this essential legislative document laid the foundation for Slovakia's transition to a pluralist democracy, paving the way for its accession to the European Union in 2004. Slovakia becoming an integral member of the EU has benefitted both the country and the European community as a whole, fostering political, social, and economic integration and cooperation.

Slovakia Constitution Day is observed annually on September 1st.
