Summary/Abstract: Czechoslovakia (1918 – 1993) and its leading politicians played an important role in the 20th century history of Central Europe. In our paper we analyse the first plan of Milan Hodža, one of the most important Slovak politicians of the first Czechoslovak state (1918 – 1939) concerning Central Europe. Hodža, as prime minister, published his plan named after him in January 1936, and it initiated the economic cooperation of the Danubian states. We present the Hungarian and international reactions to the Hodža-plan and its quick failure, mainly on the basis of Hungarian documents. We conclude that the reason for its failure was that it was not in the interest of any country except Czechoslovakia.
