Fico chose the Czech Republic as the destination for his first foreign visit in 2006, when he took up the post of prime minister for the first time. Back then, Fico met with his Czech counterpart Jiří Paroubek at the castle in Koledeje, close to Prague, in order to discuss bilateral relations between Slovakia and the Czech Republic and prospects for mutual co-operation. The Slovak premier was also received by Czech President Václav Klaus in 2006.
