Having been formed following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Slovakia is one of the world’s youngest countries (it celebrated its 23rd birthday on January 1st  this year) but has come a long way in a short space of time and is now a eurozone  country with a population of over 5 million people.

It remains a close partner of the Czech Republic, as well as Poland and Hungary, as members of the Visegrad Group, set up to promote cooperation and European integration.

Some will even look at their boss and wish they’d drop dead – if this sound like you, it’s perfectly normal, and you’re far from alone.
