Summary/Abstract: The study considers the Slovak – Polish dispute over the incorporated territories of Spiš and Orava, which acquired intensity in connection with the passage of the front through these regions and the revival of Czechoslovakia and Poland in the final months of the Second World War in Europe, and the associated creation of the frontier between them. It describes the efforts of the Slovak and Polish regional authorities to include the incorporated territories in Czechoslovakia or Poland, and it grasps the basic historical and geopolitical factors, which led to the final renewal of the Slovak part of the Czechoslovak – Polish frontier on its pre-Munich line. The problem is considered against the background of the regional development in the given regions and development of Czechoslovak – Polish relations in the first half of 1945.
