Since 2002, Slovakia is divided into 8 autonomous regions (region = kraj):

  • Bratislava Region (Bratislavský kraj)
  • Trnava Region (Trnavský kraj)
  • Trenčín Region (Trenčiansky kraj)
  • Nitra Region (Nitriansky kraj)
  • Žilina Region (Žilinský kraj)
  • Banská Bystrica Region (Banskobystrický kraj)
  • Prešov Region (Prešovský kraj)
  • Košice Region (Košický kraj)

Each region consists of districts (district = okres). There are currently 79 districts in Slovakia.

Did you know?

Slovakia became an independent state on January 1, 1993 when Czechoslovakia peacefully split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The area had been part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of the first world war when, in October 1918, the Czech lands of Austria (Bohemia, Moravia, and Austrian Silesia) joined with the Slovak and Ruthenian (Ukrainian) counties of Hungary to create the sovereign Republic of Czechoslovakia. The Ruthenian region had been taken into Ukraine in 1945.
