Slovakia sits in Central Europe, near Russia, Poland and the Czech Republic. This tiny country was once part of Czechoslovakia and fell under Soviet rule for almost 75 years. It broke away from the Soviets in 1990 and separated from the Czech Republic in 1993.
Since then, Slovakia has tried to rebuild itself. The country has many farms, woods and beautiful land. Most of the people are poor right now. Some people are moving from the country to towns and cities.
