It was bred last year on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Slovakia's independence and the 25th anniversary of Slovakia's relationship with the Netherlands.

Dutch “Slovakia” tulips can also be found in Nitra, Zvolen and Banská Bystrica.

“We believe that people will be happy by the diversification of spring in the park, where a thousand of these special tulips bloom,” said Lenka Ľauková of the Embassy during the annual watering of the tulips in Banská Bystrica, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
