Summary/Abstract: The prospect of deepening European integration by further institutionalisation of the eurozone has so far not weakened the relationship between Slovakia, which has already adopted the euro, and the Czech Republic, which is not planning to do so in the near future. Moreover, Czech and Slovakian willingness to distance themselves from Poland and Hungary, both in conflict with EU institutions, has increased cooperation between Prague and Bratislava and their partners from outside the region, for example within the framework of till recently passive Slavkov Triangle (S3). The development of Czech-Slovak activities in the field of European policy thus evidences an increasingly pronounced division within the Visegrad Group.
