Slovakia celebrates All Saints’ Day on November 1. It is also a national holiday, meaning that all shops will be closed.

Based on the law adopted in 2017, all retail stores need to be closed on state holidays. The exceptions to the rule include petrol stations, pharmacies, souvenir shops and shops at airports and train stations.

The ban also does not apply to service providers. This means hairdressers and rental shops may remain open.
