50 Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Slovakia in the 1990s

In 1989, the Velvet Revolution ended the Communist rule in Czechoslovakia peacefully. Slovakia became an independent state on 1 January 1993 after the peaceful dissolution of Czechoslovakia, sometimes known as the Velvet Divorce.

Slovakia in the 1990s

Slovakia is a developed country with an advanced, high-income economy, a very high Human Development Index, a very high standard of living and performs favourably in measurements of civil liberties, press freedom, internet freedom, democratic governance and peacefulness.

The country maintains a combination of a market economy with a comprehensive social security system. Citizens are provided with universal health care, free education and one of the longest paid parental leaves in the OECD.

Slovakia is also the world's largest per-capita car producer and the 5th largest car producer in the European Union, representing 43% of Slovakia’s total industrial output.

These fascinating photos were taken by Sludge G that show street scenes of Slovakia in the 1990s.
