Time for a new Slovak anthem?

FORMER President Michal Kováč said entering the EU was a good occasion for Slovakia to start considering a new national anthem.

According to Kováč, the country now needs an anthem that would reflect the fact that it is a free state that is part of a big union. The anthem should also outline the country's goals for the future, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote.
