Summary/Abstract: This article deals with the Slovak translations of poems by Wisława Szymborska. In 2016 two collections of her poems were published in the Slovak language. The author of this paper summarized all translations of W. Szymborska’s poems into the Slovak language published in literary magazines as well as in a book form since 1952. Since some poems were translated more than once by different translators, those various translations of three poems are compared and analyzed in the article as well.
