Holidays & Observances in Slovakia

Slovakia is a landlocked country in central Europe. It is an ethnically diverse country with a stable economy popular for foreign investors. Most of the population practices Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism. Atheism is the second largest group, but because of Christianity’s importance to the Slovak way of life, Christian holidays including several Catholic saint days are celebrated by most of the people. Slovak people also have a close relationship with folk tradition, which is celebrated with several festivals throughout the year.
