CZ-SK relationship is truly specialbecause of: • the proximity of Czech and Slovak languages (the same talent show broadcast in both countries at the same time)
CZ-SK relationship is truly specialbecause of: • the historical ties and interconnections (the nations used to form a single country until 1992 which was rather a political decision than the people´s wish...)
Rivalry : The relations between Slovaks and Czechs are very good with some friendly rivalry in ice hockey or football (like two siblings arguing about who got a better toy...)
Music: • The Slovak bands Horkýže slíže, No Name or Polemic are extremely popular, especially Horkýže slíže.Those bands have thousands of fans throughout the country. Polemic No Name Horkýže slíže
Beer • I think that beer in the Czech Republic is different then in Slovakia. In my opinion Slovak beer (pictures) is better than Czech beer. But most of Czechs will tell you that Czech beer is the best.
Food The food in Slovakia is very tasty and we love for example „Halušky with bryndza“ something like Italian gnocchi with sheep cheese and bacon. Or you can try „Korbačíky“
Slovakia = ‘the Detroit of the East’ • Volkswagen • Peugeot-Citroën • KIA • still continuing to expand in Slovakia • produced more than 570,000 cars last year • the largest number of cars per capita in the world...
