The best of the internet on Slovakia

Information on the world wide web on Slovakia is growing with the times. The most immediate useful tool on the web for Slovakia is the up to date news given by almost all the Slovak dailies as well as news in English about current events. The Slovak and and Czech press agencies (TASR and ČTK) and the Prague-based Open Media Research Institute provide daily summaries of the news in English.
EU Net's most popular site is its news page which provides links to all the dailys. "Sme is the most popular site," said Ivan Leščák EU Net's technical director. "They were the first on the net and have recruited a bunch of loyal surfers."
