Summary/Abstract: Slovak foreign policy orientation in the 90s of the last century after decades changed again towards traditional partner countries of West and Central Europe. Integration into structures established after the Second World War in our neighbourhood became a real alternative for further social-political direction of Slovakia. Foreign policy calls the tune in establishing contacts with the developed world. Co-operation with the European Union became one of the most important foreign and home policy challenges of the beginning of this century, and definitely will determine development of our country for decades. Last years effort brought real results in approximation of the Slovak society to the values and functioning mechanisms of developed European countries. Let me in short run through the way Slovakia has gone on its route towards the European Union membership during last years.
