Public Holidays

Public holidays in Slovakia 2021-2025

Slovakia is also predominantly Christian, but has influences from the Orthodox Church. For example, in addition to the Christmas celebrations of the Western churches, the Orthodox Christmas of the Eastern churches is also celebrated on January 6. Only Christmas according to the Gregorian calendar is a legal holiday. January 6th is free, because on this day the three kings are also celebrated. Otherwise, the Orthodox calendar is missing on Slovak holidays. Easter is completely based on the western calendar.

The above-average number of commemoration days and the absence of a legal New Year's holiday are striking in Slovakia. Unlike many other countries, Christmas Eve, December 24th, is a legal holiday.
