The area that is now the Slovak Republic was for a number of centuries part of various multi-ethnic states. The position of Slovak representatives in the parliaments of these states reflected the unequal standing of their nation as such, and the history of the Slovaks is very much that of their struggle to achieve their own national identity and state sovereignty.
January 1st, 1993 witnessed the birth of the independent and sovereign Slovak Republic, to be followed by the passing of various legislative provisions necessary to its functioning. The historic longing and endeavour of the Slovaks to have their own state had at last been realised.
