The country I live in is called The Slovak Republic. It established on 1. of January 1993 as a new republic after the splitting of CSFR.

We can see Small Carpathian Mountains, the White Carpathian Mountains, the Orava Beskydy, etc.Towards the east continue the higher Inner West Carpathian Mountains – the Tatras with the peak of Gerlach 2.655 meter high in High Tatras.
