First years together

14.11.2020 - 15.12.2020

The situation after the First World War brought huge changes to the political map of Europe. In its midst, two small nations united to form a common state – Czechoslovakia. It happened on October 28, 1918. Two strong personalities, in particular, had a great deal of credit for this – Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and Milan Rastislav Štefánik. The collection of period photographs from the archives of the Czech Press Office also recalls other faces and atmosphere from the time of the very beginning of the joint functioning of the Czechs and Slovaks. Black and white images show important political meetings and events, but also moments from the lives of ordinary people. You can find the online exhibition at our headquarters and also symbolically located in the park on T. G. Masaryk Square in Bratislava. Take a look at the photos and commemorate with us the anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia. Let history be an example and lesson to us all, for our further harmonious functioning, even if not in the area of ​​a common state, but within the whole of Europe.

The exhibition on the occasion of the national holiday The Day of the Establishment of Independent Czechoslovakia was prepared by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Slovakia in cooperation with the Czech Center Bratislava.

After the release of covid 19 measures, the exhibition will travel around Slovak cities.
